Abstract:

The report summarizes the three-year research program at Systems, Science and Software to investigate the effects of meso-scale and small-scale interactions on global climate. The research concentrated on two areas, orographic effects on the wind patterns and effects of radiation transport on the climate. Volume I describes the orographic research and includes the theory of momentum transport due to mountain ranges, the formulation of several computer codes to calculate the effects for realistic topography and wind profiles, and the application of these codes to various problems and comparison with other calculations as well as experimental results.
