Areas of Interest
Professor Richter’s research group is interested in computational techniques such as direct numerical simulation and large eddy simulation for studying turbulence in the atmosphere and ocean. Detailed knowledge of turbulent exchange of heat, moisture, and momentum at the air-sea interface is critical for accurate storm prediction.
He also is interested in developing tools for simulating multiphase systems that can be applied to a wide variety of geophysical flows, including subsurface sediment transport and saltation.
Professor Richter also holds a concurrent faculty position in the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering.
