Författare: Gollvik, Stefan


A dynamical model fov, computing orographic precipitation, which utilizes a large-scale numerical model and information about local orography, has been developed. Some cloud physics is incorporated in the model. Theprecipitation is strongly dependent on the estimation of the vertical velocity. The model has been tested for a three month period and compared with observations. The problem of verification is also discussed.
