Abstract : The evolution of general circulation patterns has been studied by means of a two-level quasi-geostrophic model incorporating diabatic heating and surface friction. An attempt was made to introduce water vapor into the model atmosphere, and to study the resulting patterns of evaporation and precipitation. (Author)
