Abstract : A more realistic numerical model for long-range forecasting is set up from a system which includes relevant equations in hydrodynamics, thermodynamics and radiation transfer. The model includes the effect of friction and turbulence and makes allowance for the mutual adjustment between atmospheric motions and radiation balance. Systems of differential equations suitable for numerical integration are presented for a two-level model and a three-dimensional model separately. (Author)
