Abstract : A numerical model for the description of some of the major features of isolated cumulus clouds formed as the result of surface heating is described. This one-dimensional model is an elaboration of the Weinstein and Davis Steady State Cumulus Dynamics model and has been extended to include a method for forecasting the environmental meteorological conditions. Detailed discussions concerning the development of the theory, the application of numerical techniques to the theory, and the computer calculation processes are provided. (Author)
