Abstract:

Our long term goals are to understand the dynamics of atmospheric motions on scales of order 10 m - 10 km in sufficient detail to be able to provide a consistent subgrid scale turbulent closure for models across a range of scales, and to be able to utilize simulated variances as a measure of forecast predictability.
