This is a research opportunity to do analysis and assimilation on the data from mountainous terrain and from laboratory experiment. Specifically, the data includes Doppler wind lidar observations over a mountainous terrain and laboratory experiment via particle tracking velocimetry. The research involves developing/evaluating model to simulate turbulent wind field in urban and complex terrains. The ultimate goal is to develop/improve theories on the atmospheric turbulent flow over urban and complex terrains in different synoptic weather conditions, and to assimilate the data into an atmospheric boundary layer environment model for more accurate predictions.
