Turbulence in the Atmosphere
Convener: Carlos Yagüe  | Co-Conveners: Francesco Tampieri , Maria Antonia Jimenez Cortes 
 / Mon, 28 Apr, 15:30–17:00
 / Attendance Tue, 29 Apr, 17:30–19:00
Poster Summaries & DiscussionsPSD17.3 

This session is open to different approaches of the study of the turbulence in the atmosphere: theoretical, observations and field experiments, numerical modelling and laboratory experiments. A proper understanding and description of turbulence in the atmosphere and in the environment is very important in order to deal correctly with transport processes, relevant both as parameterization for meteorological and atmospheric models, and for air quality applications. The purpose of this session is to discuss the importance of turbulence at different scales and its highly nonlinear processes associated which are present in topics as: Observational Methods in the Atmospheric Boundary Layer, Stable Boundary Layers, Large Eddy Simulations, Boundary Layer Processes in Numerical Models, Boundary Layer Clouds and turbulence-fog interactions, evening and morning transitions of the ABL, etc.

Solicited talk will be given by Dr. Marie Lothon (Laboratoire d'Aérologie. University of Toulouse, France) on the Boundary Layer Late Afternoon and Sunset Turbulence (BLLAST) project and 2011 field experiment.

Each presenting poster autor will have 2.5 minutes to present the main results of their work (Tue, 29 Apr, 17:30–18:15 / Room B4). After that the authors should be close to the posters in order to attend questions from people.
