Class Info

Covers phenomena, theory and modeling of turbulence in the Earth's oceans and atmosphere. The scope will range from centimeter- to planetary-scale motions. Includes homogeneous isotropic three- and two-dimensional turbulence, convection, stratified turbulence, quasi-gesotrophic turbulence, baroclinic turbulence, and macroturbulence in the ocean and atmosphere.

This class has 12.843 as a prerequisite.

12.820 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by G. Flierl and R. Ferrari.
