transilient

A near-extinct adjective defined as "passing across”, referring specifically to the traversing of associative fibres in noncontiguous gyri of the cerebral cortex.

An upgrade of the Mesoscale Atmospheric Simulation System, hereafter referred to as MASS (Zack and Kaplan, 1987), which is the operational model of the Catalan Weather Service, and the 1-D atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) model based on the transilient turbulence scheme (Stull, 1984).
The 1-D atmospheric boundary layer model is based on non-local transilient turbulence closure, first developed by R.
This information and turbulent surface fluxes are provided hourly to the transilient model, which supplies the time evolution of temperature, wind speed and turbulent heat flux profiles and then the mixing height.
