This thesis is concerned with developing atmospheric systems in sub-tropical and tropical regions. It deals , specifically, with Northern African depressions, which have the local name Khamsin,and which develop frequently during the spring months causing occasional sand storms in the area. I The results show the necessity and importance of using the time-dependent terms in computing the vertical motion (omega) field for this kind of phenomenon. This importance arises from the rapidity of the development associated with a significant diurnal variation of the dynamical fields.
