In this talk, we will present some recent mathematical results, mainly the global wellposedness and convergence of the relaxation limit, on two kinds of dynamical models for the atmosphere with moisture. In the rst part of this talk, which is a joint work with Edriss S. Titi , we will consider a tropical atmosphere model introduced by Frierson, Majda, and Pauluis (Commum. Math. Sci. 2004); for this model, we will present the global well-posedness of strong solutions and the strong convergence of the relaxation limit, as the relaxation time " tends to zero. It will be shown that, for both the nitetime and instantaneous-relaxation systems, the H1 regularities on the initial data are sucient for both the global existence and uniqueness of strong solutions, but slightly more regularities than H1 are required for both the continuous dependence and strong convergence of the relaxation limit. In the second part of this talk, which is a joint work with Sabine Hittmeir, Rupert Klein, and Edriss S. Titi , we will consider a moisture model for warm clouds used by Klein and Majda (Theor. Comput. Fluid Dyn. 2006), where the phase changes are allowed, and we will present the global well-posedness of this system.
