Numerical simulation of future low-level jet characteristics
In this paper, results of numerical simulations of low-level jet (LLJ) characteristics are presented. By forcing a boundary layer model with the results of a regional climate model, long time series have been calculated which are analyzed with special regard to the night-time wind regime. The simulated LLJ statistics are compared qualitatively with available observations and show overall good agreement. The frequency distributions for jet height and jet speed at the end of this century show light changes with a tendency to an increased jet height.
