Mesoscale Group

Who's who: Ambrogio Volonté

Position/Job Title:
PhD Student
Research Interests:
  • Extratropical Cyclones
  • Mesoscale Instabilities
  • Interaction between flow and orography

PhD student started in April 2014 coming from a master degree in Physics at University of Milan. Project is titled "Dynamics of Sting Jets and their Relation to larger-Scale Drivers", supervised by Peter Clark and Sue Gray. The main interest in the project, through a case study and idealised simulations, is to address the role of large-scale factors (e.g.cyclone background state), diabatic processes and the release of mesoscale instabilities (e.g CSI) on sting-jet generation and strengthening . In this way the project aims to provide a strong theoertical underpinning to the sting-jet related research that is currently undertaken within the project Sting jet windstorms in current and future climates .
