This article gives a review of the research done in the Soviet Union through 1959 on the theory and practice of numerical weather prediction by hydrodynamical methods. Russian meteorologists have used the same geostrophic forecast system as have other meteorologists and have carried out a number of test forecasts with electronic computers. Comparatively little has been published so far in objective weather-map analysis, general-circulation experiments and the use of non-geostrophic equations.
