Abstract : A diagnostic, non-linear balanced model is applied to a case study in the tropical Western Pacific on 1 and 3 March 1965. The region includes both sides of the equator and contains the ITCZ. A discussion of the ITCZ is given and the model is discussed along with the processing of the input data. The study contains the horizontal wind velocity and the thermal distribution as input values. Dry adiabatic vertical velocities are obtained and compared with the ITCZ.
