Scientific School: "Topographic Internal Waves"

Cargèse, France, 2-11 november 2010

The purpose of the School is to gather about 80 PhD and post-doctoral students from the atmospheric and oceanic communities having an interest in topographically generated gravity waves such as lee waves and the internal tide. While the School is mainly intended to students, any scientist willing to participate is also welcome to attend. Nonlinear processes will be addressed, from small scale mixing to large scale transport in the ocean and in the atmosphere, involving climate issues. Lectures and seminars will be given by senior scientists having a wide recognition in their field. A large number of topics will be thus be addressed, providing a broad view on topographic internal waves far beyond their linear generation processes.

We hope stimulating discussions will arise from the gathering of students and lecturers during the ten days of the School in the very pleasant place of Cargèse, in Corsica.
