Title:Gravity waves from vortex dipoles and jets
Seminar:The Pritchard Lab Seminar
Speaker:Fuqing Zhang, Dept of Meteorology, Penn State University
Abstract:
Jets are one of the major sources of gravity waves fundamental to atmospheric dynamics. In this study, idealized balanced jets and vortex dipoles in a uniformly stratified atmosphere are used to initialize a nonlinear mesoscale numerical model. In all cases, inertial gravity waves are generated in the jet exit region. We subsequently develop a linear numerical model to explore the source mechanisms of these waves.
