Title: Turbulence in Atmospheric Simulations
Speaker: Seiya Nishizawa (Computational Climate Science Research Team)
Presentation Language: Japanese
Presentation Material: English
There exist various spatiotemporal scale phenomena in the atmospheric variability, and they interact with each other. Atmospheric turbulence is small scale variability, and plays an important role in the larger scale phenomena. Because of its small scale, it has been difficult to represent the turbulence directly in atmospheric simulations, so far. The effects of turbulence on large scale phenomena have been taken into account through parameterizations based on empirical rules in simulations. As the development of computers, it has become possible to represent the turbulence in the simulations. I will introduce the importance of the turbulence in the atmospheric variability, and our study on representation of the turbulence in the simulations.
