UE Environmental flows

Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :


Environmental flows lecture aims at introducing geophysical fluid dynamic and showing how mechanistic approaches are commonly applied to describe the flows. The atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) is presented as an example, It is associated with its boundary conditions, namely the energy budget at the surface and the geostrophic circulation at the top.

  1. Introduction and surface boundary conditions for ABL
  2. Mathematical decription of ABL
  3. Introduction to turbulence
  4. Similarity theory
  5. Measurements in ABL
