Date Posted: 12/23/2018

Opportunity Description

Microscale Atomspheric Modeling The overall objective of this research is to develop an efficient microscale prognostic model of the atmospheric boundary layer that couples multiple atmospheric variables such as wind, temperature, moisture, and passive scalars (aerosols). The effects of complex terrain (to include urban, mountainous, and jungle/forest) and atmospheric radiation transfer modeling (urban and forest canopy) are also to be considered. Specifically, this research and development is to extend recent advancements in computational fluid dynamics for microscale turbulent flows over urban and complex terrains, such as, the finite-volume method and the lattice Boltzmann model. This project also seeks to advance the development of high performance computing algorithms for microscale meteorological modeling using GPU and other HPC facilities. Click here for more information
