NIC Excellence Project 2013

At its October meeting at JSC, the NIC Peer Review Board awarded the title of NIC Excellence Project 2013 to a second outstanding simulation project . The goal of the project "Direct Numerical Simulation of Turbulent Mixing in the Planetary Boundary Layer", submitted by Dr. Juan Pedro Mellado (Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, Hamburg), is a comprehensive understanding of turbulence in the planetary boundary layer under strong and weak wind conditions, as well as with pure convective forcing.
