The AIRFlowS Lab is seeking enthusiastic and motivated Graduate and Undergraduate students interested in studying Environmental Fluid Mechanics, Atmospheric Transport, or Air Quality. Please contact Dr. Foroutan to learn about the ongoing projects.


December 2018: "Coordinated Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) and Ground-Based Weather Measurements to Predict Lagrangian Coherent Structures (LCSs)" was published in Sensors. In this collaborative work, we use measurements from a ground-based and two UASs along with WRF-LES simulations to detect attracting regions (Lagrangian Coherent Structures, LCSs) in the lower atmosphere.

October 2018: Our collaborative work with Ross Lab on using Generalized Lagrangian Coherent Structures to study pollutant transport in the atmosphere is presented at the CMAS conference. See our poster here.

August 2018: Charbel Harb has joined AIRFlowS as a PhD student. Welcome, Charbel!

July 2018: "Adding four-dimensional data assimilation by analysis nudging to the Model for Prediction Across Scales – Atmosphere (version 4.0)" was published in Geoscientific Model Development.

June 2018: Dr. Foroutan attended the 111th Annual Conference of the Air and Waste Management Association as an invited panelist.

May 2018: "Numerical analysis of pollutant dispersion around elongated buildings: An embedded large eddy simulation approach" was published in Atmospheric Environment.

November 2017: Our collaborative work with Schmale Lab and Ross Lab titled "Data from flying sensors and modeling efforts to help identify and respond to hazards following hurricanes" is supported by ICTAS, Data and Decisions.
