Is there similar discussion group in atmospheric fluid dynamics? Thanks in advance

never heard of one, but then i never checked . at least if you stick around you can be our resident expert on large eddy simulation.

Not that I know.

But there are some active groups in places like CalTech (GPS), etc... working on planetary atmospheres for example. So that if you have specific questions you might want to try to contact them directly.

You can also post your questions here, I am sure there are a few people who could help. And for sure I would be interested.

And if you find such a atmospheric FD group, then let us know.

Thank you for your responses.

The application mentioned in this forum are mostly industry oriented. However, many CFD research activities, particularly those funded by government, are related to atmospheric (or geophysical or astrophysical) studies. At this moment, I am doing research on numerical method and applying the method to study the shear stratified turbulence caused by jet stream.

There are forums for discussion of weather and/or meteorology, and some specific user group for a particular weather simulation code (e.g. MM5). However, I changed my affiliation over the years and signed off from most of them. I am just wondering any reader of this group knows about one which is similar to this one so I can hook up with them again.

I will try to make a search and post those which may appeal to the readers here.

Thank you. Frank

There is a usenet news group called sci.geo.fluids and one called sci.geo.meteorology. The fluids group is not that wide-spread I think so you might have trouble finding it on your local news-server. Anyway, those groups might be interesting.

Do you think that a special GEO-CFD forum at CFD Online would be useful? I could open something like this if you want. I'm not sure if there are enough people to support this kind of subjet-oriented forum though.

I certainly think that it is useful. Atmospheric fluids are rich in phenomena which are not observed from industry related fluids. The GEO-CFD group will draw a different spectrum of reader to this site.

Do you think that those readers will find this group? Are there enough people involved on GEO-CFD to support a dedicated forum? You need an audience of at least 200 people in order to keep a forum alive I think.

Certain advertisment are needed.

However, there is one difficulty though. Atmospheric physics need to bring in many physics. It is hard for an ordinary partitioner, like me, to have comprehensive knowledge of every related aspect of this study. Hence, with just 200 audience, you may find no intersection between their area of interest or expertee. So it may happens that the questions posted are not answered or the answers are not professional. If this happens too often, then the readers may desert the forum.

So, for the forum to be successfully, I guess a larger audience pool is needed.

Hi,

Just some more information for you to consider.

There are two active discussion group which I have joined before. One is in weather (called "Weathertalk" ?)which is frequently visited by TV forcasters. The reference to computational aspect is seldom or casual. The other is called "Student in Meteorology", which is more academic oriented.

There are also two not so active dicsussion group which I have visited before. One is called Calmet (Computer aided learning in Meteorology) and another one in MM5. The former one has perhaps several posts per year while the later one has one or two per month. Still their existence is usefully, so that some specific question which arise ocassionally can be put forward.

Thanks. Frank
