A revised conceptual model of cumulus clouds as thermal vortices
American Geophysical Union, Fall Meeting 2010, abstract id. A24C-04 (2010)
We present results from a detailed analysis of cloud-resolving model simulations of cumulus growth into environments of varying relative humidity. ...
Variation in convective properties across the HR diagram
Astrophysical Dynamics: From Stars to Galaxies, Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union, IAU Symposium, Volume 271, p. 401-402 (2010)
We perform 3D radiative hydrodynamic simulations to study convection in low-mass main-sequence stars with the aim of improving stellar models. ...
Turbulent Convection in Stars: Some Recent Advances
From Stars to Galaxies: Building the Pieces to Build Up the Universe. ASP Conference Series, Vol. 374 (2007)
Advances are discussed in two areas in which improved numerical treatments of radiation hydrodynamics, coupled with advances in helioseismology..
Coherent structures in granulation convection and their importance for higher ...
Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union 2(S239):74 - 76 · August 2006 with 12 Reads (2006)
We use numerical simulations of granulation in the Sun and a K dwarf to study the effects of coherent structures ...
Three-dimensional simulations of the upper radiation–convection transition layer in ...
Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (2004)
This paper describes three-dimensional (3D) large eddy simulations of stellar surface convection using realistic model physics. The simulations include the ...
