Abstract


The development of numerical models for meteorological analysis is often based on nonlinear equations systems describing complex fluids, having more components and for which generalized Navier – Stokes equations are used. In several real cases it is necessary to use numerical calculation approaches in which the equations are discretized. The aim of this contribution is working out results regarding the optimization of the performance of a mathematical – physical model, formulated for meteorology forecasts in limited and high resolution area, and obtained by interdisciplinary studies. In particular, in order to test the validity of the presented model, different microphysical parameterizations have been analyzed, every one taking into account different hydrometeor nucleation processes.
