Coupled mesoscale-LES modeling of a diurnal cycle during the CWEX-13 field campaign: from weather to boundary-layer eddies

Editor's Highlights—


This paper demonstrates the value of using a nested large-eddy simulation methodology to capture fine-scale details tied to specific real-world conditions and locations. The authors have been very careful in their simulation setup, and document what should be considered best-practice approaches for doing this style of modeling. The overall finding of being able to capture the tail of the turbulence distribution for the nighttime stable conditions is also of considerable interest.
