09:00 - 10:30 Advanced modeling of offshore and stratified flow
In this session on advanced flow modelling focus will be on the following issues: modelling flow under stable atmospheric conditions, tools for offshore wind farm planning and the benefits of high-resolution modelling. The stable flows will be modelled with CFD codes in three different ways, applied to on-shore and coastal environments.
Delegates will be able to explain:
- why flow under stable conditions is different from neutral flow
- the main additions to the CFD codes in order for the models to improve results under stable conditions
- the main parts of a tool for offshore wind farm planning and how they work together
- how increasing the resolution of models for resource assessment improves the value of the output

Jessica Standen has been working as a mesoscale model development scientist specialising in wind resource modelling at the Met Office for 6 years. Prior to this she obtained an MMath in mathematics from the University of Exeter in 2009. During her time at the Met Office Jessica has focused on resource assessment procedures, in particular generating numerical wind atlases, researching the various methods of producing these, as well as using numerical weather forecast models to produce long term hindcast datasets for use in wind resource assessment.
