Dynamical Subgrid-scale Parameterizations for Quasigeostrophic Flows using Direct Numerical Simulations

Zidikheri, Meelis Juma


In this thesis, parameterizations of non-linear interactions in quasigeostrophic (QG) flows for severely truncated models (STM) and Large Eddy Simulations (LES) are studied. Firstly, using Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS), atmospheric barotropic flows over topography are examined, and it is established that such flows exhibit multiple equilibrium states for a wide range of parameters. A STM is then constructed, consisting of the large scale zonal flow and a topographic mode. It is shown that,...[Show more]
