Role of Heterogeneous Ecosystems in Modulating Surface-Atmosphere Transport
Thursday, May 11, 2023
11 a.m.-12 p.m.
The Earth's surface is heterogeneous at multiple scales owing to spatial variability in various properties. The atmospheric responses to these heterogeneities through fluxes of energy, water, carbon, and other scalars are scale-dependent and nonlinear. Observational studies and large eddy simulations have observed secondary circulations in the turbulent atmospheric boundary layer as coherent turbulent structures or thermally induced mesoscale circulations. However, they have been limited....
