Stochastic Models for the Kinematics of Moisture Transport and Condensation in Homogeneous Turbulent Flows

Abstract

The transport of a condensing passive scalar is studied as a prototype model for the kinematics of moisture transport on isentropic surfaces. Condensation occurs whenever the scalar concentration exceeds a specified local saturation value. Since condensation rates are strongly nonlinear functions of moisture content, the mean moisture flux is generally not… (More)
