  • Matt Rogers Colorado State
  • Published 2001


Stratocumulus simulation in a 2D Large Eddy Simulation (LES) model is performed, using the CSU−CIMMS LES written by Marat Khairoutdinov and Yefim Kogan. The simulation is for an idealized nighttime stratocumulus−topped PBL described by the initial conditions as given in the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment Cloud System Study (GCSS) results paper (C… (More)
