This course features a movie "Fluid Dynamics Film - Turbulence" and simulations "Two-dimensional Flow around an Obstacle" about turbulence in the study materials section.
This course presents the phenomena, theory, and modeling of turbulence in the Earth's oceans and atmosphere. The scope ranges from centimeter to planetary scale motions. The regimes of turbulence include homogeneous isotropic three dimensional turbulence, convection, quasi-geostrophic turbulence, shallow water turbulence, baroclinic turbulence, macroturbulence in the ocean and atmosphere.
