Turbulent Mixing Processes in the Earth System

Group Leader: Juan Pedro Mellado


The dynamics of the atmosphere and the ocean is the result of the simultaneous interaction among numerous and very diverse complex phenomena, like large-scale motion, chemistry, radiation, clouds or turbulence. Turbulence is the focus of this Max Planck Research Group. Our goal is to improve our current understanding of geophysical turbulence and its role in the susceptibility and predictability of the earth system. [more]
