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 (...)

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 (...)

Internal mixing and near-bed dynamics induced by restricted stratified exchange flows

This is the first project performed on the new platform Coriolis II.
The aim is to study the dynamics of the mixing between fresh and salty water in an estuary or a fjord. Both configurations (...)
