Development of a turbulence closure model for geophysical fluid problems
Applications of second-moment turbulent closure hypotheses to geophysical fluid problems have developed rapidly since 1973, when genuine predictive skill in coping with the effects of stratificationExpand
A Hierarchy of Turbulence Closure Models for Planetary Boundary Layers.
Abstract Turbulence models centered on hypotheses by Rotta and Kolmogoroff are complex. In the present paper we consider systematic simplifications based on the observation that parameters governingExpand
ユーザーガイドのこのバージョンは,1991年以降生じた変更を認めている.コード自体は若干の最近の変更 を取り入れている.Fortran名:tmean,smeanは,関数と残りの関数からくるこれらの変数の取扱いを識別す るために,tclim,sclimに変更された.より明確にそれらの機能を示すために,名称:trnu,trnvは,drx2d,Expand

Diagnostic and prognostic numerical circulation studies of the South Atlantic Bight
Some of the results from a series of diagnostic and prognostic numerical simulations of the circulation in the South Atlantic Bight (SAB) are described. The numerical model developed for the study isExpand
The Pressure Gradient Conundrum of Sigma Coordinate Ocean Models
Abstract Much has been written of the error in computing the horizontal pressure gradient associated with sigma coordinates in ocean or atmospheric numerical models. There also exists the concept ofExpand
The Three-Dimensional Current and Surface Wave Equations
Surface wave equations appropriate to three-dimensional ocean models apparently have not been presented in the literature. It is the intent of this paper to correct that deficiency. Thus, expressionsExpand
Wave Breaking and Ocean Surface Layer Thermal Response
The effect of breaking waves on ocean surface temperatures and surface boundary layer deepening is investigated. The modification of the Mellor‐Yamada turbulence closure model by Craig and Banner andExpand
Analytic Prediction of the Properties of Stratified Planetary Surface Layers
Abstract By considering the complex of one-point, turbulent moment equations for velocity, pressure and temperature, it appears possible to predict some properties of diabatic, density-stratifiedExpand
