Idealized tornado simulations for Wang et al. (2021) turbulence memory study.

A. Wang, Y. Pan & P. Markowski
This dataset contains the numerical simulations used in the Wang et al. (2021) study of turbulence memory in idealized tornadoes. Surface friction contributes to tornado formation and maintenance by enhancing the convergence of angular momentum. The traditional lower boundary condition in atmospheric models typically assumes an instant equilibrium between the unresolved stress and the resolved shear. This assumption ignores the physics that turbulent motions are generated and dissipated at finite rates—in effect, turbulence has a...
