Two distinctive features of large-scale geophysical flows are that they are dominated by the earth's rotation and that they are turbulent. This year's lecture program was an exploration of recent achievements in the study of, first, the simplest examples of turbulence, and second, the rotational constraint.

Experimental and seismological constraints on the rheology, evolution, and alteration of the lithosphere at oceanic spreading centers deMartin, Brian J. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-02)Oceanic spreading centers are sites of magmatic, tectonic, and hydrothermal processes. In this thesis I present experimental and seismological constraints on the evolution of these complex regions of focused crustal ...
