Lemos (Instituto Tecnologico de Aeronaytica, Brazil) updates his 2006 textbook for graduate courses on turbulent transport phenomena in engineering, chemical, and environmental programs that address such issues as fuel cells, porous combustors, advanced heat exchangers, biochemical problems such as air flow in lungs, and modeling natural and environmental flows such as atmospheric boundary layer over vegetation or fire spreading through forest.
Writing for fellow researchers and graduate students, they consider such aspects as concepts and measurements of atmospheric boundary layers, the parameterization of convective boundary layer turbulence and clouds in atmospheric models, analytical models for the dispersion of pollutants in low wind conditions, an outline of Lagrangian stochastic dispersion models, Eulerian and Lagrangian perspectives on atmospheric dispersion with a large-eddy simulation, photochemical air pollution modeling, and the inversion of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations.
Near the surface of the Earth, the atmosphere frequently stratifies, and in the Northeast, this atmospheric boundary layer is frequently below the summits, helping to explain why this region's higher elevations are uncoupled in part from climatic events observed at lower elevations," Kimball said.
Important findings of this study include the synchronous characteristics of the life cycle of pollutants within the urban atmospheric boundary layer and obvious diurnal variation in the vertical transport of pollutants in the boundary layer or under the air dome.
