Oceanic and atmospheric flows
Observations in the ocean and the atmosphere is “a giant laboratory for turbulence research”
Theodore von Kármán
We operate a large rotating tank that can reproduce the effects of the earth's rotation in the lab. This has been used to model buoyant outflows to the coastal ocean.
Our water tunnel can produce high Reynolds number turbulent atmospheric boundary layer flows.
Our density stratified flume can generate flows to mimic mixing processes in the ocean.
