Summer study program in geophysical fluid dynamics : order and disorder in turbulent shear flow
Stern, Melvin E.

Our thanks go to Martin Landahl for his stimulating expository lectures on recent development in "lab scale" turbulent flow. This subject was covered by him and other staff members from the experimental, analytic, and numerical point of view. The seminars on two-dimensional coherent structures provided a nice connecting link for subsequent lectures on large scale ocean eddy dynamics (e.g. warm core rings detaching from the Gulf Stream).

Geyer, W. Rockwell; Lavery, Andone C.; Scully, Malcolm E.; Trowbridge, John H. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-11-25)Shear instability is the dominant mechanism for converting fluid motion to mixing in the stratified ocean and atmosphere. The transition to turbulence has been well characterized in laboratory settings and numerical ...
