Abstract

A dynamical model of the atmosphere has been used as a basis for some simulations of orographic precipitation. It is originally a boundary layer model with a sophisticated turbulence closure and here a two-dimensional version has been used. A scheme for calculating the increase of precipitation has been included, giving realistic results for non-convective precipitation
