    Abstract

    Can we construct an accurate atmospheric climate model with a balanced model representing its fluid mechanics, and with dissipative as well as non-dissipative parameterization schemes for the gravity-wave activity? To address this question, we focus our attention on a 1 1/2-layer atmospheric model with an isentropic troposphere and isothermal stratosphere. We investigate parcel dynamics in a hybrid Eulerian-Lagrangian formulation, potential vorticity conservation, static stability, linear modes and the concept of balanced flow; and briefly discuss wave-vortex interactions and recent advances in numerical solution techniques.
