Workshop III: Geophysical and Astrophysical Turbulence

Part of the Long Program Mathematics of Turbulence
October 27 - 31, 2014


This workshop will cover a number of selected topics that are common to Oceanography, Planetary Geophysics, Atmospheric Dynamics and Astrophysics including turbulent convection, turbulence induced by baroclinic instabilities, shear turbulence (both stratified and unstratified), double-diffusive convection, and wave-induced turbulence. In all these cases geophysicists and astrophysicists strive to model the effects of the specific type of turbulence considered on heat, compositional and momentum transport. In many instances progress on common problems has been made in parallel without much interaction between the scientific communities.

This workshop will bring together scientists from different backgrounds to share their most recent results, attempting to bridge the subject-gap, and foster fruitful collaborations.

This workshop will include a poster session; a request for posters will be sent to registered participants in advance of the workshop.
