Aviation meteorology

Aviation operations are undertaken in sometimes very severe meteorological conditions. Many of the meteorological processes important to aviation safety are better understood by utilising a combination of analytical and numerical mathematical techniques, which are common in applied mathematics. A range of interesting phenomena, including swirling flow boundary layers, turbulent boundary layers, airflow over and around topography, hydraulic jumps, effects of Coriolis force on wake flows, etc are available to students.
