    • Dependence of model energy spectra on vertical resolution 

      Waite, Michael L (American Meteorological Society, 2016-03)
      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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Normal Mode Wave-Vortex Decompositions of Mesoscale Simulations 

      Ambacher, Matthew (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-18)
      The kinetic energy spectrum of the atmosphere has been well observed to exhibit a k^(-3) power law at synoptic scales with a transition to a shallower k^(-5/3) power law at the mesoscale. To better understand the mesoscale ...
