  • Numerical analysis of a thermotopographically-induced mesoscale circulation in a mountain basin using a non-hydrostatic model

    Authors
    Andy Sturman, Peyman Zawar-Reza
    Journal
    Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics
    Year
    2006
    The boundary-layer wind field during weak synoptic conditions is largely controlled by the nature of the landscape. Mesoscale (sub-synoptic) circulations result from horizontal gradients of sensible h... REGISTER NOW TO SEE MORE

    2006
    A mesoscale numerical model was used to perform two-dimensional numerical simulations of a thermally driven circulation, known as the Canterbury Plains Breeze, to examine the effect of key physical me... REGISTER NOW TO SEE MORE
  • The surface wind field during winter smog nights in Christchurch and coastal Canterbury, New Zealand
