Environmental Sciences Department Seminar

"Observation and simulation of coastal urban atmospheres in a changing climate, with an emphasis on NYC"

Presented by Robert Bornstein, Department of Meteorology & Climate Science, San Jose State University

Tuesday, June 3, 2014, 10:30 am — Bldg 815E Conference Room

Urban areas alter atmospheric energy and moisture balances to create unique weather patterns and local climates. During periods of global change, urban climates can amplify adverse impacts from larger scale changes. This presentation thus reviews processes creating urban climates and also recent advances in numerical mesoscale modeling in general and in urban modeling in particular, with an emphasis on simulations over NYC. Possible model developments are discussed, as are implications for human heat-stress, energy consumption, and air quality.
