Tuesday, 24 January 2017, 4:00 PM-5:30 PM
view in conference program

This themed joint session focuses on observations of the coupling of urban surfaces to the atmospheric boundary layer. Distinguished invited speakers will review observational studies that aim to elucidate the interactions between the urban surface energy budget and the turbulent atmospheric flows, and the feedbacks of these interactions. A particular emphasis is placed on the understanding of fundamental processes that can be leveraged towards further improving prediction models at all scales.


(Joint between the 13th Symposium of the Urban Environment; and the AMS Committee on Boundary Layers and Turbulence )
