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.

Making a deposit has never been easier. Complete the Library's short copyright review and deposit service form and we’ll determine the copyright status of your publications, identify the versions that are eligible for deposit, and make the deposits on your behalf.

  • An Anisotropic Subgrid-Scale Parameterization for Large-Eddy Simulations of Stratified Turbulence 

    Khani, Sina; Waite, Michael L (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 ...
  • Resolution Dependence and Subfilter-Scale Motions in Idealized Squall-Line Simulations 

    Lai, Kwan Tsaan; Waite, Michael L (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 ...
  • Normal Mode Spectra of Idealized Baroclinic Waves 

    Ambacher, Matthew R.; Waite, Michael L (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 ...
  • Realizing Surface-Driven Flows in the Primitive Equations 

    Bembenek, Eric; Poulin, Francis J.; Waite, Michael L (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 ...
  • Dependence of Model Energy Spectra on Vertical Resolution 

    Waite, Michael L (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 ...
