Rotating, Stably Stratified, Incompressible Turbulence

The combined influences of rotation and stable stratification have a strong influence on the evolution and resulting structures in a turbulent fluid. Different regimes of rotation and stratification are being studied in two projects.

Quasi-Geostrophic Turbulence

The case of asymptotically strong stratification and asymptotically fast rotation is called Quasi-Geostrophy.

Boussinesq Turbulence

The more general Boussinesq equations also capture regimes of weaker stratification and rotation.
