    ESE: CREST Seminar Series: Future Trends in Modeling Urban Weather

    Urban areas alter atmospheric energy and moisture balances to create unique weather patterns and local climates. During periods of global change, urban climates can amplify adverse impacts from larger scale changes.

    This presentation thus reviews processes creating urban climates and also recent advances in mesoscale modeling in general, and in urban modeling in particular. Possible model developments are discussed, as are implications for human heat stress, energy consumption, & air quality.

    Prof. Bornstein has been at the SJSU Meteorology Dept. since 1969. His Ph.D. is from NYU, and his research interest is observation & simulation of polluted coastal urban PBLs in a changing climate. He has: been Executive (or Emeritus) Editor of Atmospheric Environment since 1987, served on the WMO Commission for Urban & Building Climatology (2004-9), and received AMS (2008) & IAUC (2009) lifetime achievement awards for urban research. Last month he taught a mesoscale modeling course at the Beijing Institute for Urban Meteorology (IUM).
