The second ‘S’ in BLISS stands for simulation. Find numerical simulation resources commonly used by BLISS team members.
Large eddy simulation (LES) is a numerical model primarily used to study boundary layers and turbulence. LES was first proposed by Joseph Smagorinsky to simulate atmospheric currents. LES simulates turbulence by solving Navier-Stokes equations at a very wide range of time and length scales.
The OU Supercomputing Center for Education & Research (OSCER), a division of OU Information Technology, helps undergraduates, grad students, faculty and staff to learn and use advanced computing in their science and engineering research and education.
Warn-on-Forecast is a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration research project that aims to increase lead time for tornado, severe thunderstorm, and flash flood warnings. Meteorologists and their tools are good at identifying which days will see severe weather in different regions.
The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model is a next-generation mesoscale numerical weather prediction system designed for both atmospheric research and operational forecasting applications. Many BLISS team members are experienced users of the WRF-ARW model for ‘real-data’, idealized, single-column, and large-eddy simulations.
