[PPS02-09] High resolution Large eddy simulation on Martian planetary boundary layer
Keywords:Martian Planetary Boundary Layer
Well-known features of the boundary layer, such as hexagonal structure of convective cells and the -5/3 energy spectrum, are reasonably simulated. Dependency of several physical quantities at 14:00-15:00 local time, when the boundary layer is almost mature, on the resolution is analyzed. We found that vertical heat flux and variance of vertical velocity of resolved component show convergence or systematic tendency with the resolution. Convective vortices are developed and most of them are located near the upward reasion.
