Large-Eddy Simulation #104: Upwind PBL
LES RUN #104: Upwind PBL. This simulation was initialized horizontally homogeneous
with a radiosonde sounding from the Sheboygan ISS during Lake-ICE on this morning
of 13 Jan 98.
We intended to run this LES for a long time to obtain an "equilibrium" solution.

This domain is 4 km (east-west) by 4 km (north-south) wide by 2.0 km tall and all
over land with a roughness length of 1 m.
Periodic BCs in both horizontal directions. The flow is from the NW with a
400 m deep mixed layer. Radiation in the model is turned off and there is no
surface heat flux. The movie is 8 hours duration
with frames every 10 minutes.
Gravity waves develop in the inversion above the ML. Their amplitude becomes so large
by 6 hours that they overpower roll structures we hoped to see in the ML.
