Tim writes, someone somewhere reminded me
An anon has reminded me of a critical paper published in the May 1967 issue Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences.
As such in the context of the mid 1960s with little knowledge or computing hardware there ought to be no problem. Unfortunately a number of critical fixed assumptions and of ideas in the paper were ignored for what they were and has formed the basis of the nonsense we have today. The continued correction which typifies science guessing seemed to cease.
Given the Talkshop has many new eyes and opinions since the last mention of this paper a look today is a good move, or at least I think so.
Extracted from paper, one of several choices.
