Welcome to the Environmental Fluid Mechanics Group in the Department of Earth and Environment at Boston University.

Our group focuses on the dynamics and thermodynamics of the lower atmosphere, in particular the atmospheric boundary layer, and how they are affected by human activities. We are particularly interested in the interaction between the atmospheric boundary layer and the Earth’s surface such as exchanges of mass, momentum, and energy. We use a variety of research tools, including theoretical analyses, numerical models, and field experiments to address pressing challenges such as climate change and urbanization.

You can find our research and publications here. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
