The partial time derivatives from some meteorological parameters can be used for atmospheric energy transfers estimations. One way to calculate partial time derivatives fields based on advection obtained in semi-Lagrangian approach. In this article the principle of computation algorithm is shown, an example using partial time derivatives for energy transfers analysis grounds on products of WRF model is given, conclusions about influence initial data time resolution on results is obtained.
