Abstract : The first part of a digital preparation format to provide necessary processing of raw data to a form suitable for General Purpose Analog Computer solution in the Low Level Meteorological Model has been completed. This format has been employed to verify the manual procedures followed in the derivation of the eleven test cases on which the evaluation and refinement procedures of the Low Level Meteorological Model have been based to date. Case studies of the Low Level Meteorological Model have shown that the profile equations for wind, temperature, and vapor pressure are inadequate and replacement relationships have been derived. Computational verification of the new relationships are reviewed. (Author)
