Gallery of Atmospheric Dynamics Animations

by Mathew Barlow, EEAS Professor of Climate Science This post includes twenty short animations from our undergraduate two-course sequence in atmospheric dynamics.  Topics covered include vorticity, waves, and instability. The code used for these animations can be found through https://storm.uml.edu/~metweb/Blog/?p=578 and https://github.com/mathewbarlow/simple-atmospheric-models. 1.  Winds and rotors for an idealized vortex Embedding rotors (‘+’) in the flow allows […]

Simple Atmospheric Models: Resources

by Mathew Barlow, EEAS Professor of Climate Science This post gives links to freely-available code for simple models of the atmosphere (and ocean). If you know of anything I’ve missed, please email me at Mathew_Barlow@uml.edu and I will add it here. Many thanks to Daniela Domeisen, Geoff Vallis, Malte Stuecker, Nathaneal Wong, Milan Klöwer, and […]
