Welcome to UWSpace
UWSpace is the University of Waterloo's institutional repository for the research and scholarship produced by its faculty, students, and staff. A service of the Library, UWSpace provides researchers with a free, secure, and long-term home for the presentation, dissemination, and preservation of their research and scholarship. By utilizing UWSpace researchers ensure their work achieves compliance with the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications.
Looking for Waterloo theses and dissertations? UWSpace contains all theses and dissertations published from October 2006 on, and a subset from 1996 through 2006, when electronic submission was optional. Older theses can be accessed by searching the library catalogue by title or author last name.

(AMS, 2020-10-01)Subgrid-scale (SGS) parameterizations in atmosphere and ocean models are often defined independently in the horizontal and vertical directions because the grid spacing is not the same in these directions (anisotropic ...
(AMS, 2020-07-08)In this paper, the sensitivity of idealized squall-line simulations to horizontal resolution, subgrid turbulence mixing scheme, and subfilter-scale motion is discussed. Inconsistent results from numerical simulations ...
(AMS, 2020-02-01)Normal modes are used to investigate the contributions of geostrophic vortices and inertia–gravity waves to the energy spectrum of an idealized baroclinic wave simulation. The geostrophic and ageostrophic modal spectra ...
(AMS, 2015-05-01)The surface quasigeostrophic (SQG) model describes flows with surface buoyancy perturbations with no interior quasigeostrophic potential vorticity at small Rossby number Ro and O(1) Burger number, where quasigeostrophic ...
(AMS, 2016-04-01)Many high-resolution atmospheric models can reproduce the qualitative shape of the atmospheric kinetic energy spectrum, which has a power-law slope of −3 at large horizontal scales that shallows to approximately −5/3 in ...
