Research Interests:

What becomes of the general circulation of the atmosphere of a planet, if its solar constant, its radius, its rotation rate, its gravitational acceleration and so on are different from those of the Earth? I am pursuing such an issue by observing an idealistic atmosphere generated virtually in a numerical computer with the help of collaborators distributed over the Internet. This is an effort to locate the atmospheric circulations of Earth, Mars, Venus and outer planets as particular realizations on a wide parameter space, and consequently to recognize necessity and/or contingency of those states. This is also an attempt to verify and deepen the understandings of the Earth's atmosphere, since all of the knowledge on the present Earth's atmosphere must be thrown out to speculate a possible atmospheric state which might be realized under the conditions of the planets other than the Earth, past or future of those planets, and virtual planets without any real substances. It may be worth notifying that, they are not unrealistic chimeras at all since many exosolar planets have been discovered.

Main Research Themes:

  • Geophysical fluid dynamics; wave and shear instability, dry and/or moist convection, rotating turbulence.
  • Structures of planetary atmospheres; thermal structures, convection and general circulations of the atmospheres.
  • Computation and information meteorology; development of simulation models for geophysical fluids and planetary atmospheres, development of analysis and visualization tools for multidimensional numerical data.
