Abstract

Experiments with a global, 2½° primitive equation model show that for periods of one week a wall placed at the equator does not appreciably affect the results of a forecast of large-scale mid-latitude atmospheric flows. The success of the hemispheric model depends on the lack of distortion of the mean and eddy quantities of the large-scale processes in the subtropical region.
