    Summer School 2015: Fluid Dynamics of Sustainability and the Environment

    The DAMTP Summer School on Geophysical and Environmental Fluid Dynamics that ran from 1991-2006 resumed in 2012 in Cambridge. While it retains the basic features of the GEFD Summer School such as...


  5. 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...
