Les Houches Summer School on Fundamental Aspects of Turbulent Flows in Climate Dynamics


Climate is controlled by turbulent flows. Turbulent motions are responsible for the bulk of the transport of energy, momentum, and water vapor in the atmosphere, which determine the distribution of temperature, winds, and precipitation on Earth. Clouds, weather systems, and boundary layers in the oceans and atmosphere are manifestations of turbulence . . . → Read More: Les Houches Summer School on Fundamental Aspects of Turbulent Flows in Climate Dynamics
