Title:Gravity waves from vortex dipoles and jets
Seminar:The Pritchard Lab Seminar
Speaker:Fuqing Zhang, Dept of Meteorology, Penn State University
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.
