Abstract : Several finite-difference methods for solving the equations considered in modeling the planetary boundary layer and some new techniques for the use of these methods are presented and commented on. Three implicit finite-difference schemes and one explicit scheme are discussed as each is considered in view of required computer running time. (Author)
