Abstract : Theoretical studies of local temperature and humidity changes have been initiated only in recent years and were made chiefly along lines of formulating two schemes: (1) the periodic scheme defined usually as the theory of diurnal variation, is associated with the determination of the periodic solution of appropriate equations of the meteorological elements. (2) the aperiodic scheme in a general case amounts to a nonstationary problem, the solution of which is determined with a given initial distribution of the temperature and humidity in the vertical. This report considers recent results obtained by the author for improving both the periodic and aperiodic schemes and also for generalizing these schemes to a case of taking advection and the previous state of the weather into account.
