Description:
A fundamental and recent knowledge on mesoscale circulations in the coastal regions are examined from theoretical, observational, and model perspectives. Thermally-driven and orographically-driven circulations in the interaction with synoptic-scale weather systems are studied to develop useful conceptual models of coastal meteorological phenomena associated with hydrological changes.
Recent findings on the application of numerical atmospheric and air quality models, their limitations and peculiarities in the coastal area during the dynamic air interaction over the sea and the land. The development of coupled atmospheric-air quality model system above the coastal area. Boundary layer and turbulence parameterization in coastal zones. Interaction of air circulations at different meteorological scales and coastal convective precipitation systems. The impact of interaction on the phenomena which are dependent on the boundary layer structure.
