Congratulations to Lior Shig and all the co-authors from the IIBR and our alumni, Dr. Ron Shnapp, who's now at BGU, for publishing the paper on the structure of turbulence in two-height canopy flow. This is another step towards understanding these flows' complex multiscale dynamics. The special thing is a combination of the large scale structures in the roughness sub-layer (of the atmospheric boundary layer) and small scales due to the roughness elements (canopy elements). In this particular case, the canopy is heterogeneous in height.
The new paper in the Flow, Turbulence, and Combustion journal is a selected work from the conference where Lior Shig presented his analysis of the measurements obtained by the IIBR team at their Environmental Wind Tunnel.
