2018INTERNAL : Internal gravity/inertial wave turbulence

Note : all of these research activities are carried out under the European project ERC WATU.
Most of geo and astrophysical flows are turbulent and affected by background stratification, i.e. the (...)

2017ICESHELF : Topographic barriers and warm ocean currents controlling Antarctic ice shelf melting

The potential collapse of the Antarctic Ice Sheet in a future, warmer climate and the consequent dramatic rise in sea level would cause flooding of large, densely populated areas. The Fifth (...)

2017MILESTONE : MIxing and LEngth Scales in Stratified Turbulence - Part 2

Strongly stratified turbulence is a possible interpretation of oceanic and atmospheric measurements.
However, this regime has never been produced in a laboratory experiment because of the two (...)

2017GRAVIT : Mécanismes de transfert d’énergie et convergence des statistiques d’ordre 4 de la turbulence d’onde de gravité.

Les couplages non-linéaires entre ondes permettent le développement d’un régime turbulent. C’est notamment le cas pour les ondes à la surface de l’océan qui peuvent ainsi avoir un spectre très large et (...)

2017SLOCET : Sheldf sLOpe impact on Coastal Eddy Turbulence

New theoretical analyses and numerical computations have shown that regions of the continental shelf where the offshore shelf profile changes significantly can be sources of coastal eddies and (...)

2017ANNI : Vorticity Annihilation at High Reynolds Numbers

The project aims at understanding how rapid vorticity annihilation takes place across a sharp vortical interface at high Reynolds numbers. In order to characterize this process, two distinct yet (...)

2016RESEK : Wind stress resonance and deep ocean energy transfer

There are two main comparable sources of the energy to the deep ocean : winds and tides. However, the most efficient mechanism that transfers wind energy to the deep ocean is still debated. We (...)

2016CREST : Gravity currents in sub-marine canyons

Dense buoyancy-driven flows in channels are the main transport pathway between shallow slope regions and the deep sea. In higher latitudes these stratified flows are known to be strongly affected (...)

2016MILESTONE : Mixing and length scales in Stratified Turbulence

During the last decade a new theory of stratified turbulence has emerged. The project aims at testing the predictions of this theory in controlled laboratory experiments for the first time. A (...)

14GRAVIT : Wave turbulence

Participants Quentin Aubourg, Nicolas Mordant.
The project aims at observing the regime of ’wave turbulence’ in which power law spectra are expected to occur through weak nonlinear interactions (...)
