Abstract : A two-layer model applicable both to graphical integration and numerical computation is proposed. Using this model, the height of the 500-mb surface and the thickness between this and some chosen isobaric surface in the vicinity of the top of the friction layer can be derived. An extended model involving three layers is also designed. Unlike Sawyer and others, in designing these models, the distribution of the vertical velocity with height is not prescribed. Finally, the steadiness of the space mean velocity field and the selection of lateral boundary conditions are discussed. (Author)
