  Flow processes and turbulent exchange in urban canopies
  Dr J Barlow, Dr O Coceal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  Urban Tree for Cooling Cities
