James D. Doyle and Dale R. Durran

key aspect of rotor development involves the mutual interaction between the lee wave and the surface boundary layer. Their two-dimensional simulations indicate that a thin vortex sheet, generated by mechanical shear in the boundary layer, separates from the surface owing to adverse pressure gradients associated with lee waves. To explore the dependence of rotors on the lee wave amplitude, Doyle and Durran (2002) also conducted a series of simulations with varying mountain heights and interface
