Geophysical and Environmental Fluid Dynamics Summer School
|Ocean surface waves are generated by storms and carry energy over vast distances. When they encounter shallow water they break and their energy is dissipated in complex three-dimensional turbulent flow.|
|The Laboratory Experiments|
Each afternoon the summer school participants
experiments. These experiments , conducted in the GK Batchelor
Laboratory, explore a wide range of fluid mechanical
behaviour including the dynamics of deep-water waves and solitary waves,
various effects of stratification and rotation, and the processes of turbulent
entrainment and mixing. Here are some photos from the 2004 school.
The Director of the GK Batchelor Laboratory is Dr Stuart Dalziel.
