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.
