Dr. William Anderson – May 10

Numerical Simulation of Inertia-Dominated Turbulent Flows Dr. William Anderson May 10, 2018 2:00 pm/NWC 560 Abstract: This talk presents a summary of three active research themes: (1) canonical wall-bounded turbulence and roughness effects; (2) aeolian processes on Earth and Mars; and (3) small-scale mixing in the ocean-mixed layer. On the first: turbulent flows respond to […]

Abstract: Understanding flows within the urban canopy layer is crucial for determining the distribution of particulate matter in urban areas and implications for air quality and human health. While multiple studies have been conducted to understand plume characteristics in urban environments, plume behavior close to point sources (< 1 km) and the effects of buildings and foliage on plume characteristics are not well understood.

Dr. Grace Guirong-March 29-Boundary Layer, Urban Meteorology, and Land-Surface Processes

At the WHAM laboratory, we have been simulating the tornadic wind fields numerically (using CFD simulations) and experimentally (in laboratory tornado simulators) to study the static and dynamic responses on civil structures induced by tornadoes. We believe that the entire community has a role to play in improving their community’s resilience to tornadoes. To achieve true tornado resilience, besides technical advancements, the whole community should be aware of the threats and, following best practices, act appropriately together.

Hristo Chipilski-March 8

Using data from the 6 July 2015 PECAN mission, this study examines how the assimilation of novel boundary layer (BL) profilers affects the forecasts of a bore-initiated convection event. To account for the multi-scale nature of the phenomenon, data impacts are discussed separately with respect to the (i) bore environment, (ii) explicitly resolved bore and (iii) bore-initiated convection.

Tyler Bell- March 8- Boundary Layer, Urban Meteorology, and Land-Surface Processes

In recent years, increased attention has turned to studying the planetary boundary layer (PBL) as advanced instruments have become more affordable. Commercial availability of scanning Doppler lidars and the recent widespread availability of small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAS) has opened up a world of opportunity to observe and study the complex processes that occur in the PBL. These two paradigms (remote sensing and UAS), have the potential to revolutionize boundary layer observations.
