Professor Sergej S. Zilitinkevich (born in 1936 in Leningrad), our long-standing convener of the Boundary Layer Session at EMS, passed away on February 15, 2021. He will be remembered for his pioneering work in the physics of atmospheric turbulence and planetary boundary layers, but also for the energy and passion he displayed in all aspects of his work and last not least his unique personality. He was always developing new ideas even in his 80s.
This special session will bring some of co-workers along his career to bring forward some of his main contributions to science together with some personal memories and experience about working with him.
All participants to the session are welcome to air their own memories about Sergej, or how his ideas and papers may have influenced their work.
The indicative content will be:
Sylvain Joffre: Intro
Dmitrii Mironov: PBL depth
Christof Lüpkes: Nonlocal parametrization of turbulent fluxes
Yulia Troitskaya: Air-sea interaction
Alexander Baklanov: Air quality and urban parametrisations
Markku Kulmala: The Pan-Eurasian Experiment (PEEX)
Igor Esau: Climatic implications of the PBL turbulence
Free discussion involving the whole audience
