Large Eddy Simulation of Stable Boundary Layer Turbulent Processes in Complex Terrain

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Research was performed using a turbulence boundary layer model to study the behavior of cold, dense flows in regions of complex terrain. Results show that flows develop a balance between turbulent entrainment of warm ambient air and dense, cold air created by surface cooling. Flow depth and strength is a function of downslope distance, slope angle and angle changes, and the ambient air temperature.
