    Sammanfattning : In this thesis various descriptions of the near surface atmospheric flow over a high latitude glacier is used in an effort to increase our understanding of the basic flow dynamics there.Through their contribution to sea-level change, mountain glaciers play a significant role in Earth’s climate system.

  2. 2. Mesoscale dynamics and boundary-layer structure in topographically forced low-level jets

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Meteorologiska institutionen (MISU)

    Författare :Stefan Söderberg; Michael Tjernström; Branko Grisogono; Douw G. Steyn; [2004]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; low-level jets; boundary layer; turbulence structure; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Meteorology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Meteorologi;

    Sammanfattning : Two types of mesoscale wind-speed jet and their effects on boundary-layer structure were studied. The first is a coastal jet off the northern California coast, and the second is a katabatic jet over Vatnajökull, Iceland. LÄS MER
