Numerical simulation of a cold orographic cloud system, A
A computer simulation of a two-dimensional, meso-scale, cold orographic cloud system, which represents the first stage of development of a comprehensive model, is presented. Simulation is achieved by numerically solving, in finite difference form, a set of time dependent hydrodynamic and thermodynamic equations. The domain of solution is an 11 kilometer long and 3.5 kilometer deep rectangular box containing a triangular orographic barrier with an altitude of 1 kilometer and base of 3 kilometers. Grid spacing is constant at 100 meters. The equations of the model are based upon Ogura and Phillips ...
