Abstract

Numerical expressions for turbulent flows in mesometeorology are developed. In the cases of rather steep topography, hydrostatic approximations may not be valid and thus the system which involves the hydrostatic approximation and the expressions deriving from it will not be appropriate. But in hydrostatic simulations where the slope of the terrain is not too steep, the authors expect that near the ground the surfaces will follow approximately the ground contour.
