In reality, the temperature at the surface is about 290 K, which is much higher than 255 K (Fig. 5). In addition, satellite-based observations of the emission spectrum of the Earth system at the top of the atmosphere show a spectrum that is consistent with the Planck function of a black body page 31 August 20, 2014 9:59 BC: 8047 – Applicable Atmospheric Dynamics 32 ApplicableAD Applicable Atmospheric Dynamics 10 20 Pressure [hPa] 30 50 70 100 150 200 250 300 400 500 600 700 850 1000 200 210 220 230 240 250 Temperature [K] 260 270 280 290 Fig.

In addition, the smaller the Rossby number, the stronger the balance must be for Eq. 67) to hold. When Ro 1, the total acceleration of the parcel due to the processes at scale L is at least an order of magnitude larger than what could be explained by the Coriolis force. That is, the motion must be dominated by a rapid acceleration due to a strong pressure gradient force. 1, the Rossby number is Ro 10−1 for planetary waves, synoptic scale waves, and extratropical cyclones. The typical time scale of changes for these forms of motion can be estimated by Eq.

The computation of the dot product in Eq. 22 For any Cartesian coordinate system with unit vectors i, j and k, the del operator is ∇= ∂ ∂ ∂ i+ j+ k. 47) Hence, the Lagrangian derivative of A can be written as dA = dt = + + ∂Ax ∂t ∂Ax ∂t ∂Ay ∂t ∂Az ∂t ∂Ay + v · ∇Ay j + ∂t ∂Ax ∂Ax +v +w i ∂y ∂z ∂Ay ∂Ay +v +w j ∂y ∂z ∂Az ∂Az +v +w k. 48) The short form of Eq. 48) is ∂A dA = + (v · ∇) A. 7. When the local Cartesian coordinate system is used to represent both the wind vector and the vector of location, the Lagrangian time derivative of the wind vector v is ∂v dv = + (v · ∇) v dt ∂t ∂u ∂u ∂u ∂u ∂v ∂v ∂v ∂v = +u +v +w +u +v +w i+ j ∂t ∂x ∂y ∂z ∂t ∂x ∂y ∂z ∂w ∂w ∂w ∂w + +u +v +w k.
