Themed Joint Session 10 Observations on Urban Fluxes and Boundary Layers: Recent Significant Developments and Open Challenges

Tuesday, 24 January 2017: 4:00 PM-5:30 PM
Conference Center: Tahoma 2 (Washington State Convention Center )
Hosts: (Joint between the 13th Symposium of the Urban Environment; and the AMS Committee on Boundary Layers and Turbulence )
Elie Bou Zeid, Princeton University, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Princeton, NJ and Jorge E. Gonzalez, City College, NOAA-CREST & Mechanical Engineering, New York, NY

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.
