In this dissertation we focus on numerical models of rotating anelastic convection, in particular the entropy boundary condition, with application to the giant planets. The first chapter details atmospheric features of giant planets and the numerical formulation of anelastic convection. The...
Separating the influence of projected changes in air temperature and wind on patterns of sea level change and ocean heat contentDownload
We present ocean model sensitivity experiments aimed at separating the influence of the projected changes in the “thermal” (near-surface air temperature) and “wind” (near-surface winds) forcing on the patterns of sea level and ocean heat content. In the North Atlantic, the distribution of sea...
Response of the Mediterranean Sea thermohaline circulation to observed changes in the winter wind stress field in the period 1980-1993Download
This paper seeks to model changes in deep water production in the eastern Mediterranean induced by changes in winter wind stress. An analysis of individual monthly wind stress fields over the Mediterranean for 1980–1993 from the SOC flux data set shows that an intensification of the winter mean...
Origin of the interhemispheric potential mismatch of merging cells for interplanetary magnetic field BY‐dominated periodsDownload
When the dawn-to-dusk component of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF B-Y) is dominant, ionospheric convection exhibits a basic two-cell pattern with significant dawn-dusk and interhemispheric asymmetries. For IMF B-Y > 0 the duskside merging cell potential in the Northern Hemisphere is much...
Numerical Simulations of Anelastic and Boussinesq Rotating Convection with Radial Entropy Gradient Boundary ConditionsDownload
Observations from the gas giants Jupiter or Saturn allow for researchers to construct geophysical fluid dynamical numerical models in an attempt to replicate the observed features. Most models aim at replicating the zonal jets and the eddies observed on these gas giants to understand how they are...
NUMERICAL AND SEMI-EMPIRICAL MODELING OF PARTICLES UNDERGOING PHASE CHANGE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF CONVECTIONDownload
This work is devoted to the development and validation of subgrid models describing heat and mass transfer between the bulk flow of gas/liquid and a moving particle undergoing phase change under the influence of free/mixed/forced convection. Such kind of submodels plays the role of ’scale...
In this thesis we study MT from giant and subgiant donors in binary stars. We develop a MT simulation framework based on the MESA set of stellar libraries, which is suitable to study extremely high MT rates and predict the stability of MT. We find that the MT from giant donors is much more stable...
A 90 mm diameter methanol pool fire was investigated experimentally and analytically. Aiming for well-defined experiments and understanding the physics of the involved transport processes, the liquid-side boundary conditions including the pool’s bottom temperature the wall thermal conductivity...
Decline and partial rebound of the Labrador Current 1993-2004: Monitoring ocean currents from altimetric and conductivity-temperature-depth dataDownload
Monitoring and understanding of Labrador Current variability is important because it is intimately linked to the meridional overturning circulation and the marine ecosystem off northeast North America. Nevertheless, knowledge of its decadal variability is inadequate because of scarcity of current...
Comparison of the open‐closed separatrix in a global magnetospheric simulation with observations: The role of the ring currentDownload
Kabin, Konstantin, Lu, J. Y., Rankin, Robert, Gombosi, Tamas I., Watt, Clare E. J., Ridley, Aaron J., Toth, Gabor, Milan, Steve E., Zhang, Jichun, Rae, I. Johnathan, Clauer, C. Robert, De Zeeuw, Darren L., Fenrich, Frances
The development of global magnetospheric models, such as Space Weather Modeling Framework (SWMF), which can accurately reproduce and track space weather processes has high practical utility. We present an interval on 5 June 1998, where the location of the polar cap boundary, or open-closed field...
