Panel Session 2 Turbulence Research for Geophysical Applications

  • Claude Cambon
Conference paper


Session two is about geophysical turbulence. I am not a specialist of geophysical turbulence, but in fact when you are interested in stratified, rotating, turbulence, and so on, it is easier to find application to geophysical flow than to tubomachinery, for example. As it was treated by in the last talk by Nagano-san, the rotating channel flow is not so complicated but rotating turbo-machinery is a very complicated problem in general.
