People at NCAR: Peter Hjort Lauritzen
Peter Hjort Lauritzen, Ph.D.
Welcome to my personal home page. I am a Senior Scientist (from Denmark) working in the Atmospheric Modeling and Predictability (AMP) Section of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) located in Boulder, Colorado. The mission of our section is to improve our understanding of the global atmosphere and its role in the climate system through modeling and observational studies, and to represent that understanding in the form of improved numerical models of the atmosphere and larger climate system.
Research interests include: Dynamical cores for weather and climate models, remapping between spherical grids, advection/transport schemes (in particular, finite-volume methods) for unstructured grid, idealized test cases, limiters/filters for monotonicity, physics-dynamics coupling, energy conservation in Earth System Models.
