EFD Lab Collaborators

Laboratoire d'Aerologie


The Laboratoire d'Aerologie is a research laboratory that is part of the Observatoire midi-Pyrénées with researchers in Toulouse and Lannemezane at the Centre de Recherche Atmospherique. Oure collaborators reseach focuses on a range of topics including: numerical simulations and experiments of the atmospheric boundary layer. They have led and participated in many atmospheric field measurement campaigns including the BLLAST field campaign and more recently DACCIWA.

Main points of contact: Pierre Durand, Fabienne Lohou, and Marie Lothon

SIVE Lab - University of Minnesota - Duluth

Urban Temperature Simulations

Dr. Pete Willemsen runs the Laboratory for Simulation and Interaction in Virtual Environments at the University of Minnesota Duluth. He and his students are key collaborators in the development of our fast response (GPU-based) urban wind, dispersion and energy modeling systems (GPUPlume and QUIC Energy).

Main point of contact: Dr. Pete Willemsen

Los Alamos National Laboratory (D-4 division)

Dr. Michael J. Brown

Energy and Environmental Analysis Division: The primary focus of this collaboration is the development of a fast response Urban wind model. To this end, the QUIC Dispersion Modeling System has been developed to provide fast three dimensional wind fields.
