Spectral energy balance in dry convective boundary layers
(Taylor and Francis, 2015-04)
Three-dimensional large-eddy simulations (LES) of the convective boundary layer over a domain of approximately 6 km are performed with the UCLA LES model. Simulations are forced with a constant surface heat flux and ...
Topographically generated internal waves and boundary layer instabilities
(American Institute of Physics, 2015-08)
Flow over topography has been shown to generate finite amplitude internal waves upstream, over the topography and downstream. Such waves can interact with the viscous bottom boundary layer to produce vigorous instabilities. ...
Realizing surface driven flows in the primitive equations
(American Meteorological Society, 2015-05)
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 ...
