Duration:

2016-2020

Funded by:

Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD)

Brief description:

The project aims to improve the local forecast of atmospheric surface layer processes and quantities for airport areas with a focus on the precise forecast of critical events such as radiation and advection fog as well as wind gusts by using high-resolution large-eddy simulations (LES).

High-resolution numerical studies on the effect of turbulence on nocturnal radiation fogs

Bild zum Projekt High-resolution numerical studies on the effect of turbulence on nocturnal radiation fogs

Supervisor:

Björn Maronga

Researcher:

Johannes Schwenkel

Duration:

2015-2018 (phase 1), 2019-2021 (phase 2)

Funded by:

DFG

Brief description:

In this project, high-resolution large-eddy simulations (LES) will be used to investigate the effect of turbulence on nocturnal radiation fogs. The LES model PALM will be used at very high resolution in the order of 1 m with both an Eulerian bulk cloud physics scheme and an embedded Lagrangian particle model that allows for explicitly resolving aerosols and fog droplets will be employed. This innovative approach allows for studying fog droplet-turbulence interactions for the first time with LES. The aim of this study is to achieve a comprehensive view on the key parameters that determine the life cycle of radiation fog as well as its three-dimensional macro- and microstructure. Moreover, the effect of a nocturnal fog layer on the morning transition and the daytime boundary layer will be studied. The effect of surface heterogeneity on nocturnal radiation fog will be investigated by means of LES with prescribed idealized regular and observed irregular surface heterogeneities.
