    • Atmospheric Dispersion of Radionuclides Following Small Modular Reactor Accidents 

      Mitchell, Kimberly Catherine Mary (University of Waterloo, 2019-05-23)
      Small modular reactors (SMRs), reactors having a power rating of 300 Megawatts (MW) or less, have been under development for several decades. As fewer larger reactors are built due to the high upfront capital investment, ...
    • A Comparative and Exploratory Study of Homogeneous and Inhomogeneous Stratified Turbulence 

      Siewnarine, Dinesh (University of Waterloo, 2021-08-25)
      The study of turbulence in the oceans and atmosphere is far-flung and ever-reaching in the academic world with research being done theoretically, experimentally and numerically. With great strides in the increasing power ...
    • Normal Mode Wave-Vortex Decompositions of Mesoscale Simulations 

      Ambacher, Matthew (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-18)
      The kinetic energy spectrum of the atmosphere has been well observed to exhibit a k^(-3) power law at synoptic scales with a transition to a shallower k^(-5/3) power law at the mesoscale. To better understand the mesoscale ...
    • Numerical Modelling of Wind Storms in the Lower Great Lakes 

      Chandler, Laura (University of Waterloo, 2019-01-07)
      Convective storms are incredible meteorological events; the impact of just one storm can be extreme and widespread. On July 21 1998, a convective storm formed west of Lake Michigan, moving quickly across the lower Great ...
    • Prandtl number dependence of stratified turbulence 

      Legaspi, Jesse (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-15)
      Stratified turbulence is affected by buoyancy forces that suppress vertical motion, resulting in a horizontally-layered structure with quasi-two-dimensional vortices. The Prandtl number Pr quantifies the relative strengths ...
    • Sensitivity of Idealized Squall Line Simulation to Resolution and Subgrid Turbulence Mixing 

      Lai, Kwan (University of Waterloo, 2019-01-23)
      In this project, the sensitivity of idealized squall line simulations to horizontal grid spacing and turbulent mixing parameterization will be discussed. Inconsistent results from numerical simulations of convective ...
    • Turbulence in stably stratified boundary layers 

      Atoufi, Amir (University of Waterloo, 2020-11-26)
      In this thesis, turbulence dynamics for a stably stratified boundary layer is studied. The processes by which stable boundary layers are formed through strong surface cooling imposed on neutrally stratified wall-bounded ...
