  • IUTAM Symposium on Developments in Geophysical Turbulence

    Turbulence is ubiquitous in nature, playing a role in a variety of geophysical problems and related flows. Topics that will be emphasized in the proceedings of Developments of Geophysical Turbulence are: the physics and mathematics of turbulence, atmospheric and oceanic turbulence, and historical developments. This symposium continued a long ...

  • IUTAM Symposium on Hamiltonian Dynamics, Vortex Structures, Turbulence

    This work brings together previously unpublished notes contributed by participants of the IUTAM Symposium on Hamiltonian Dynamics, Vortex Structures, Turbulence (Moscow, 25-30 August 2006). The study of vortex motion is of great interest to fluid and gas dynamics: since all real flows are vortical in nature, applications of the vortex theory are ...

  • The Atmospheric Boundary Layer for Engineers

    This book assumes no previous knowledge of the subject and the material has been selected to introduce the reader to the important ideas and applications. It is particularly well suited as an introduction to the subject for engineers. The first four chapters define and describe the atmospheric boundary layer. Thermodynamic and fluid kinematic ...

  • Computational Atmospheric Acoustics

    Noise from cars, trains, and aeroplanes can be heard at large distances from the source. Accurate predictions of the loudness of the noise require accurate computations of sound propagation in the atmosphere. This book describes models that can be used for these computations. The models take into account complex effects of the atmosphere and ...

  • Atmospheric Acoustic Remote Sensing

    Sonic Detection and Ranging (SODAR) systems and Radio Acoustic Sounding Systems (RASS) use sound waves to determine wind speed, wind direction, and turbulent character of the atmosphere. They are increasingly used for environmental and scientific applications such as analyzing ground-level pollution dispersion and monitoring conditions affecting ...

  • Atmospheric Boundary Layers

    This collection of peer reviewed papers represents a concise, up-to-date summary of our current knowledge of planetary boundary layer (PBL) physics and parameterization. As such, it makes a major contribution to the interchange of knowledge and ideas between physicists, meteorologists and environmental modellers and sets out the course to be ...

  • Diffusion and Transport of Pollutants in Atmospheric Mesoscale Flow Fields

    In regions as densely populated as Western Europe, prediction of the ecological implications of pollutant transport are important in order to minimise damage in the case of accidents, and to evaluate the possible influence of existing or planned sources. In most cases, such predictions depend on high-speed computation. The present textbook ...
