"Internal waves are
difficult to capture and quantify as they propagate, deposit energy and move
energy around," Crockett said in a statement.
don't account for them on a small scale, then the large scale picture becomes a
little bit off, and sometimes being just a bit off is enough to be completely
wrong about the weather," said Crockett.
"When internal waves
deposit their energy it can force the wind faster or slow the wind down such
that it can enhance large scale weather patterns or extreme kinds of events.
"We are trying to get
a better feel for where that wave energy is going," Crockett said.
Crockett wants to develop a better linear wave model with both 3D and 2D
modelling that will allow forecasters to improve their weather forecasting.
waves move energy around is very important to large scale climate events. Our
research is very important to this problem, but it hasn't solved it
completely," Crockett said.
