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…

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

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
