Lecture: MW 10:10am-11:25am HLS 372

Spring. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: CEE 6550 or second course in fluid mechanics or with instructor’s permission. Offered on demand.

Fundamentals of stably stratified flows, stratified homogeneous turbulence (spectra, lengthscales, and timescales), kinematics of diapycnal mixing, basic turbulent flow processes in homogeneous and stratified fluids (shear layers, wakes, boundary layers, etc.), energy budget analysis, and parameterizations of geophysical turbulence. Additional topics may include fossil turbulence theory and vortex-internal wave decomposition in strongly stratified turbulence.
