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

    Author : Susanna Hagelin; Anna Rutgersson; Elena Masciadri; Valentina Zitelli; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; site testing; atmospheric effects; turbulence; optical turbulence; applied meteorology; mesoscale models; Meteorology; Meteorologi; Astronomy and astrophysics; 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.

  2. 2. Wind Turbine Sound in Cold Climates

    Author : Kristina Conrady; Anna Rutgersson; Karl Bolin; Sabine von Hünerbein; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; atmospheric acoustics; wind turbine sound; outdoor sound propagation; cold climates; Meteorology; Meteorologi;

    Abstract : The increase in the number of wind turbines (WTs) in populated areas in cold climates increases the number of people potentially being affected by WT sound. Outdoor sound propagation is strongly dependent on meteorological conditions, however, limitations in the knowledge exist regarding the implications of meteorological conditions in cold climates.

  3. 3. The use of a satellite-derived cloud climatology for studying cloud-aerosol processes and the performance of regional cloud climate simulations

    Author : Karl-Göran Karlsson; Erland Källen; Jon-Egil Kristjansson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Clouds and climate; satellite cloud climatology; validation of clouds; clouds and aerosols; Meteorology; Meteorologi;

    Abstract : The entry of satellite-derived decadal cloud datasets with homogeneous coverage in time and space enables studies not possible before. This thesis presents two such applications. The first study deals with cloud-aerosol processes and the second with an evaluation of cloud simulations from a regional climate model. READ MORE

  4. 4. Some Concepts of Estuarine Modeling

    Author : Bror Jönsson; Peter Lundberg; Kristofer Döös; Björn Kjärfve; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Oceanography Modeling Estuaries; Meteorology; Meteorologi;

    Abstract : If an estuarine system is to be investigated using an oceanographic modeling approach, a decision must be made whether to use a simple and robust framework based on e.g. mass-balance considerations, or if a more advanced process-resolving three-dimensional (3-D) numerical model are necessary.

  5. 5. On the representation of precipitation in high-resolution regional climate models

    Author : Petter Lind; Erik Kjellström; Michael Tjernström; Jan Erik Haugen; Anna Rutgersson; Abdel Hannachi; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Regional climate modeling; high-resolution; convection parameterization; precipitation; extremes; statistical analysis; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; meteorologi; Meteorology;

    Abstract : Weather and climate models applied with sufficiently fine mesh grids to enable a large part of atmospheric deep convection to be explicitly resolved have shown a significantly improved representation of local, short-duration and intense precipitation events compared to coarser scale models. In this thesis, two studies are presented aimed at exploring the dependence of horizontal resolution and of parameterization of convection on the simulation of precipitation. READ MORE
