Large-Eddy Simulation #269: (Upwind)

LES RUN #269: Exactly same as #266 except grid is moving with mean boundary layer wind. The purpose of this experiment was to determine if linear structures were due to truncation error. (even though they are 30-delta x!) This result shows that the linear structures still appear with a moving grid. Click here to see the NMSTASK file of LES #269. The following animation shows vertical velocity on 4 horizontal slices: 7.5, 97.5, 202.5 and 397.5 m above the surface.
