Abstract : A six-level baroclinic forecast model suitable for numerical prognosis was devised. This model includes vertical motion due to large-scale orographic and eddy-stress effects. The model was programmed in Fortran IV language, applied to a test case based upon initial data for 1200 GMT, 15 December 1967. A convergent 36-hour forecast was produced. Comparisons were made with the verifying analyses at 12-hour intervals. (Author)
