A 3D nonhydrostatic, Navier-Stokes solver has been employed to simulate gravity wave induced turbulence at mesopause altitudes. This work extends our earlier 2D study reported in the literature to three spatial dimensions while maintaining the fine resolution required to capture essential physics of the wave breaking. As a result of using a transformed, moving coordinate system, it is noted that the contravariant and a “solenoidal” velocity – as well as the typical physical velocity – are… CONTINUE READING
