LIFD Colloquia

Speaker: Dr Alison Stirling Title: Modelling atmospheric convection for meteorological prediction Abstract: Atmospheric convection responds locally to instability, but it also transfers heat upscale such that conditions on the planetary-scale depend, organise, and interact with it. It is the simultaneous need to represent the small length-scales of the buoyant transport, with its reach to global…
