This paper 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 inclusion of NCTs. The equations are derived using the followingâ€¦Â Expand
