The earth’s atmosphere is of overwhelming complexity due to a rich interplay between a large number of phenomena interacting on very diverse length and time scales. There are mathematical equation systems which, in principle, provide a comprehensive description of this system. Yet, exact or accurate approximate solutions to these equations covering the full range of complexities they allow for are not available. As a consequence, one of the central themes of theoretical meteorology is the development of simplified model equations that are amenable to analysis and computational approximate solution, while still faithfully representing an important subset of the observed phenomena.
