How Is math used in Meteorology?
By: Jane Doe
All of which describe the atmosphere.
Its OK! Numerical modeling is done through a computer. The equations of numerical modeling are extremely difficult.
All YOU need to know
Numerical modeling starts with analyzing the current state of the atmosphere.
Conditions are found under the numerical models of the atmosphere which are all based in the same set of governing equations.
* possible acceleration/deceleration
* intensification/deintensification of storm systems,
*and local effects (such as topography, bodies of water, and the urban heat island effect )
Maps are used to locate a place in which the meteorologist is going to forecast the weather for. They also show Highs and Lows, pressures, Intensities, and Humidity.
Graphing is used here.
Some maps used in meteorology would include:
*Forecast High and Low temperature maps
Being able to read the temperatures and pressures is key to organizing weather material.
You may have to measure, temperature, water, and air on many types of scales.
Chance of Precipitation
Hydrometry is measuring water. It’s the science that deals with how much water air can hold at a given temperature and pressure.
It is the probability of clouds, fog, and rain.
NO absolute Humidity, just relative.
