Dynamical circulation regimes in planetary (and exo-planetary) atmospheres

Abstract:

In this thesis, we study the effect of diurnally- and seasonally-varying forcing on the global circulation of planetary atmospheres explored within a large parameter space. This work focusses on studying the spacial and spectral energy budgets across a large range of planetary parameters as well as the momentum transfer as a response to diurnal and seasonal effects.

We simulate planetary atmospheres using PUMA-GT, a simple GCM co-developed for this work, that is forced by a semi-gr...
