This article promotes a measure to validate the hydrostatic approximation via scaling the nontraditional Coriolis term (NCT) in the zonal momentum equation. To demonstrate the scaling, this study simulates large‐scale flow forced by a prescribed heat source, mimicking the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) using a linearized forced‐dissipative model. The model solves two similar equations, between which the only difference is the inclusion of NCTs. The equations are derived using the… 

The Nontraditional Coriolis Terms and Tropical Convective Clouds

The full, three-dimensional Coriolis force includes the familiar sine-of-latitude terms as well as frequently dropped cosine-of-latitude terms [nontraditional Coriolis terms (NCT)]. The latter are

Response of idealized Hadley circulations to seasonally varying heating

The response of Hadley circulations to displacements of the latitude of maximum heating is investigated in idealized axisymmetric and eddy‐permitting models. Consistent with an earlier study and with

Dynamically consistent, quasi-hydrostatic equations for global models with a complete representation of the Coriolis force

The spherical polar components of the Coriolis force consist of terms in sin ϕ and terms in cos ϕ, where ϕ is latitude (referred to the frame-rotation vector as polar axis). The cos ϕ Coriolis terms

In studies on geophysical fluid dynamics, it is common practice to take the Coriolis force only partially into account by neglecting the components proportional to the cosine of latitude, the

Link between the double-Intertropical Convergence Zone problem and cloud biases over the Southern Ocean

TLDR
It is found that cloud biases over the Southern Ocean explain most of the model-to-model differences in the amount of excessive precipitation in Southern Hemisphere tropics, and are suggested to be responsible for this aspect of the double-ITCZ problem in most global climate models.

TLDR
The formulation of a fully compressible nonhydrostatic atmospheric model called the Model for Prediction Across Scales–Atmosphere (MPAS-A) is described, using centroidal Voronoi meshes and a C-grid staggering of the prognostic variables to incorporate a split-explicit time-integration technique used in many existing meso- and cloud-scale models.
