13th Conf. on Mesoscale Processes Objectives: 1. Use observations to describe the internal structure of mountain-induced breaking waves and rotors (scales, turbulent intensity, etc) Example: (2008 Mtn Met. Conf.) Wind Dir January 26, 2006 NASA06 Field Campaign 19 August, 2009

13th Conf. on Mesoscale Processes Objectives: 2. Use numerical simulations to interpret observations and examine environmental conditions under which these features formed Example: (2009 ICAM) NRL COAMPS Model 5 Nested Domains Innermost domain x = 333 mx = 333 m 60 sigma-z levels 19 August, 2009

    Fungus use Zygotic Meiosis. Haploid-dominant. Meiosis of the zygote produces haploid spores. Spores undergo mitosis to produce a multicellular haploid body (mycelium/fungus) Mycelia of two fungi fuse and develop into a fruiting body (mushroom) Fertilization produces a diploid zygote. Zygote...
