Subgrid-Scale Dynamics of Water Vapour , Heat , and Momentum over a Lake

  author={Nikki Vercauteren and Elie Bou-Zeid and Marc Parlange and U. Lemmin and Hendrik Huwald and John S. Selker and Charles Meneveau},
We examine the dynamics of turbulence subgrid (or sub-filter) scales over a lake surface and the implications for large-eddy simulations (LES) of the atmospheric boundary layer. The analysis is based on measurements obtained during the Lake-Atmosphere Turbulent EXchange (LATEX) field campaign (August–October, 2006) over Lake Geneva, Switzerland. Wind velocity, temperature and humidity profiles were measured at 20 Hz using a vertical array of four sonic anemometers and open-path gas analyzers… CONTINUE READING
