Colloquium - Khairoutdinov


Multi-Scale Modeling of Clouds and Process Studies Using CRM and MMF Frameworks
Stony Brook University

Tropical convection often organizes itself into large-convective systems, from squall lines to Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO). The effects of the multi-scale organization of convection on large-scale circulation are poorly understood.

The talk will demonstrate the application of a cloud-resolving model (CRM) to meso-scale organization of convection in the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and to the problem of tropical cyclogenesis. The application of a Multi-scale Modeling Framework (MMF) to large-scale organization of convection such as the MJO is also discussed.

This talk is sponsored by the National Center for Atmospheric Research Computational & Information Systems Laboratory and will be held in the Main Seminar Room at the Mesa Lab.

The Department holds colloquia throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These colloquia, open to the public, are typically held on Thursday afternoons, but sometimes occur at other times as well. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming colloquia, subscribe to our Colloquia Mailing List. If you would like to schedule a colloquium, see Colloquium Scheduling.

Sign language interpreters are available upon request. Please contact Stephanie Morris at least five days prior to the colloquium.
