A new, four-year, post-doc (research fellow) position in St Andrews is available starting late 2020 or early 2021. The project involves the application and extension of a new particle-based (essentially Lagrangian) model of the atmosphere, developed originally with colleagues at the University of Leeds (Dr Steef Boeing, Profs Doug Parker and Alan Blyth). Two papers have been published on the new model in QJRMS, examining idealised buoyant flows including condensation/evaporation. They demonstrate that the model can produce a highly detailed representation of turbulent flows. The goal of the current project is to get to the point where the model can be used for real geophysical applications, as an alternative to LES that is more detailed and has a more phenomenological representation of mixing processes. We are also planning to build in a representation of precipitation and perform a proof-of-concept study for an atmospheric chemistry application, where the Lagrangian approach should be particularly efficient.
