MTO 602E - Atmospheric Convection

Course Objectives

Atmospheric convection and related processes are essential for weather forecasting. This module aims to provide an accessible review of atmospheric convection from the text book to long after the class. It presents a source for graduate students. Develop an advance understanding of the structure and evolution of key paradigms of convection and atmospheric environment. Specific aims of the course are listed as below;
1- definition and prediction of atmospheric convection,
2- definition of convective boundary layer,
3- modelling of atmospheric convection.

Course Description

The principal techniques used in understanding and predicting convective motion. Basic rules of the convection. Theory, field experiment, and numerical modeling. Explores dry convection, including turbulent plumes and thermals from isolated buoyancy sources. Raleigh-Bernard convection and turbulent convection in the planetary boundary layer. Complete treatment of the thermodynamics of moist and cloudy air, including fundamental laws. Conserved quantities. Stability analysis. Explores the characteristics of individual convective clouds, thunderstorms, squall lines. Meso-scale convective systems and slantwise convection. Studies the ensemble effects of convective clouds, including stratocumulus. Convective boundary layer and the representation of convective clouds in numerical models, role of climate changing. Developing the mathematical models of meso and large scale problems in lower atmosphere.
