Observations of Flow and Turbulence in the Nocturnal Boundary Layer over a Slope
Measurements were conducted on an eastern slope of the Salt Lake Basin (SLB) as a part of the Vertical Transport and Mixing Experiment (VTMX) conducted in October 2000. Of interest was the nocturnal
Similarity Scaling Over a Steep Alpine Slope
In this study, we investigate the validity of similarity scaling over a steep mountain slope (30–41$$^\circ $$). The results are based on eddy-covariance data collected during the Slope Experiment
Understanding sprint-cycling performance: the integration of muscle power, resistance, and modeling.
This review examines the current knowledge behind the interaction of propulsive and resistive forces that determine sprint performance to build complex models of sprint-cycling performance suitable for forward integration.
Flux Richardson number measurements in stable atmospheric shear flows
The flux Richardson number Rf (also known as the mixing efficiency) for the stably stratified atmospheric boundary layer is investigated as a function of the gradient Richardson number Rig using data
Structure of Turbulence in Katabatic Flows Below and Above the Wind-Speed Maximum
Measurements of small-scale turbulence made in the atmospheric boundary layer over complex terrain during the Mountain Terrain Atmospheric Modeling and Observations (MATERHORN) Program are used to
Evening Transition Observations in Phoenix, Arizona
Abstract Past research has suggested that the evening transition in complex topography typically has several main features, such as (a) continued weak upslope flows persisting 3–5 h after sunset (if
Adapting Tilt Corrections and the Governing Flow Equations for Steep, Fully Three-Dimensional, Mountainous Terrain
In recent studies of atmospheric turbulent surface exchange in complex terrain, questions arise concerning velocity-sensor tilt corrections and the governing flow equations for coordinate systems
The MATERHORN: Unraveling the Intricacies of Mountain Weather
AbstractEmerging application areas such as air pollution in megacities, wind energy, urban security, and operation of unmanned aerial vehicles have intensified scientific and societal interest in
Urban Fluid Mechanics: Air Circulation and Contaminant Dispersion in Cities
Recently, many urban areas of the world have experienced rapid growth of population and industrial activity raising concerns of environmental deterioration. To meet challenges associated with such
