This lecture series will review basic techniques to simulate cloud processes, such as formation and growth of cloud droplets, formation of rain through collision/coalescence. Lectures will also involve practical exercises with a simple cloud-scale model.

Pełny opis:

This lecture series will review basic techniques to simulate cloud processes, such as formation and growth of cloud droplets, formation of rain through collision/coalescence. Lectures will start with simple approaches such a bulk condensation model, and will gradually introduce more comprehensive methodology, such as the super-droplet method. Lectures will also involve demonstration and practical exercises with a simple cloud-scale model based on nonoscillatory-forward-in-time differencing for fluid flows. As the main cloud modeling project, the students will simulate a (non-precipitating) moist thermal rising in a neutrally stratified environment.

Efekty uczenia się:

The student should be able to formulate and simulate on a computer simple models for the dynamics and microphysical processes in clouds.

Metody i kryteria oceniania:

Percentage of the final score:

- 40% theoretical and numerical home exercises;

- 60% written report on the main numerical simulation project performed by the student.

Attendance at lectures and tutorials is strongly encouraged, but is not compulsory. However, since this highly specialized course commonly addresses a small group of participants, students are requested to let the lecturer/tutor know in advance if they cannot be present at a lecture/tutorial.
