# Nontraditional hypsometric equation

@article{Ong2019NontraditionalHE, title={Nontraditional hypsometric equation}, author={Hing Ong and Paul E. Roundy}, journal={Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society}, year={2019}, volume={146}, pages={700 - 706} }

This study corrects the hypsometric equation by restoring the nontraditional terms to relax the hydrostatic approximation. The nontraditional terms include one Coriolis term and two metric terms in the vertical momentum equation. The hypsometric equations with and without the nontraditional correction are used to calculate the geopotential height of pressure levels using more than 300,000 selected tropical rawinsonde profiles. With westerlies between two pressure levels, the thickness of the…
