A new dynamical subgrid model for turbulent flow is used to derive the structure of the heat and momentum fluxes, mean wind and temperature profiles, and temperature and velocity variances, as a function of the Richardson number, in the surface layer of the planetary boundary layer. Analytical solutions are obtained for stationary, homogeneous surface layers and are compared with field observations. The theory allows for analytic nonperturbative solutions in any turbulent surface layer and can… 

A New Dynamical Subgrid Model for the Planetary Surface Layer. Part I: The Model and A Priori Tests

A new dynamical subgrid model for turbulent flow in the surface layer of the planetary boundary layer is presented. In this formulation, the flow is decomposed into small (subgrid) and large

Direct modelling of subgrid scales of turbulence in large eddy simulations

Subgrid scale (SGS) models for large eddy simulations of turbulent flows fall into two general categories. One category consists of the models that provide expressions for the SGS terms such as a

Law of the wall in an unstably stratified turbulent channel flow

We perform direct numerical simulations of an unstably stratified turbulent channel flow to address the effects of buoyancy on the boundary layer dynamics and mean field quantities. We systematically

Langevin models of turbulence: Renormalization group, distant interaction algorithms or rapid distortion theory?

A new dynamical turbulence model is validated by comparisons of its numerical simulations with fully resolved, direct numerical simulations (DNS) of the Navier–Stokes equations in three-dimensional,

Scaling laws prediction from a solvable model of turbulent thermal convection

A solvable turbulent model is used to predict both the structure of the boundary layer and the scaling laws in thermal convection. The transport of heat depends on the interplay between the thermal,

Experimental Study of the Subgrid-Scale Stresses in the Atmospheric Surface Layer

In a large eddy simulation of the atmospheric boundary layer, results near the surface suffer from major deficiencies of the subgrid-scale (SGS) model due to inherently insufficient resolution there.
