  1. 1. Making Meteorology Social Relations and Scientific Practice

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Acta Universitatis Stockholmiensis

    Author : Mikaela Sundberg; Stockholms universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; scientific practice; social worlds; meteorology; climate research; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Sociology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Sociologi;

    Abstract : This thesis is about the production of knowledge in meteorological research. Meteorology is an interesting case because of its crucial role in defining the climate change problem, but also because of its reliance on simulation modeling, a comparatively little studied scientific practice.

  3. 3. Optical Turbulence Characterization for Ground-Based Astronomy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Susanna Hagelin; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; site testing; atmospheric effects; turbulence; optical turbulence; applied meteorology; mesoscale models; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Meteorology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Meteorologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Astronomy and astrophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Astronomi och astrofysik; Meteorologi; Meteorology;

    Abstract : The optical turbulence, which creates perturbations of the wavefronts coming from the stars, is caused by small-scale fluctuations in the index of refraction of the atmosphere and is a problem for astronomers because it limits the maximum resolution of the ground-based telescopes. One way of identifying the best sites to build astronomical observatories, where the influence of the optical turbulence is as small as possible, is to use the standard meteorological parameters to get a first idea of the potential of a site.

  4. 4. Boundary Layer Parametrization in Numerical Weather Prediction Models

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Jacob Svensson; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Boundary-Layer Meteorology; Numerical Weather Prediction; Turbulence parametrization; COAMPS; IFS; meteorologi; Meteorology;

    Abstract : Numerical weather prediction (NWP) and climate models have shown to have a challenge to correctly simulate stable boundary layers and diurnal cycles. This aim of this study is to evaluate, describe and give suggestions for improvements of the descriptions of stable boundary layers in operational NWP models. Two papers are included. READ MORE
