Containing papers presented at the fourth IMA Conference on Stably Stratified Flows, this book focuses on flow and dispersion over topography, and includes both review material and descriptions of cutting-edge research. Topics include: the nature of the upstream effects that occur in stratified flow over obstacles, internal wave motions, atmospheric boundary layer modelling, numerical modelling, dispersion, and recent laboratory experiments on flow and dispersion around buildings in light wind conditions. With contributions from leading authorities on the subject, Stably Stratified Flows is essential for students and researchers in fluid dynamics and meteorology.
