Abstract:

As a first effort in developing an atmospheric predictive capability for the Tactical Environmental Support System TESS, the model used for the Navy Operational Local Atmospheric Prediction System NOLAPS is converted to the HP9845B, Option 275. Three primary steps are involved in this conversion. First, the model is converted from FORTRAN to BASIC code, made to duplicate existing model results, and benchmarked for time purposes. The converted model is renamed NOWLAPS Navy Over-Water Local Atmospheric Prediction System. Second, a user-interactive capability is developed for this desk-top system. And third, an interactive graphics package is developed to display the model results. Keywords Higher order closure Planetary boundary layer Atmospheric modeling Turbulence Refractivity. Author
