  1. Deriving the SWM Lecture 1: Conservation of Potential Vorticity

    04 May 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Christopher KRT Jones

    This lecture develops the conservation equation for potential vorticity in the shallow water model.

  2. Deriving the SWM Lecture 2: Stream Functions for Velocity Fields

    04 May 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Christopher KRT Jones

    This lecture develops the formulation of the stream function for the velocity field of the shallow water equation.  his is the second in a series of short lectures on deriving the shallow water model, given by Chris Jones in 2013. 

  3. Deriving the SWM Lecture 3: Barotropic Vorticity Equations

    04 May 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Christopher KRT Jones

    This lecture develops the barotropic vorticity equations for the shallow water model.  This is background lecture 2.1C in the Mathematics of Climate Modelling course.

  4. A Stochastic Bulk Rate Parameterization Driven by a Turbulent Collision Kernel

    10 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: David Collins

    Collision and coalescence of cloud droplets to form precipitating rain droplets is a poorly understood area of cloud microphysics.  Detailed models of collision and coalescence are prohibitively expensive because the length scales of these processes and the grid sizes of climate models...
