The processes responsible for generating the mean azimuthal atmospheric winds observed on Jupiter and Saturn, which feature large prograde equatorial jets and jets of alternating direction at higher latitudes, have yet to be conclusively resolved. Results from three dimensional numerical models...
We investigate parallel electron acceleration due to inertial Alfven wave pulses in the presence of Lorentzian ( kappa) distribution functions which possess high-energy tails. A linear kinetic dispersion relation for inertial Alfven waves is derived whose solutions are used to guide the analysis...
The turbulent motion of particles and their interactions with the turbulence of the carrier phase make a complex system. Hence understanding the physics and consequently developing a well-stablished model becomes very difficult. With insufficient computational power to numerically resolve all the...
The current work presents the results of an experimental study on the effects of submergence on the performance of a submerged hydraulic jump with baffle blocks downstream of a sluice gate. A wide range of Froude numbers, submergence factors, and block sizes, locations and arrangements were...
Experiments investigating momentum transfer, turbulence and air-water gas transfer in a wind wave tankDownload
A series of laboratory experiments were conducted at three fetches of 4.8, 8.8 and 12.4 m, and at six wind speeds ranging from 4.1 to 9.6 m/s at each fetch in a wind-wave-current research facility. In addition, five surfactant-influenced experiments were conducted at concentrations ranging from...
We report upon an experimental study of internal gravity waves generated by the large-amplitude vertical oscillations of a circular cylinder in uniformly stratified fluid. Quantitative measurements are performed using a modified synthetic schlieren technique for strongly stratified solutions of...
Internal gravity waves transport energy and momentum in both the atmosphere and the ocean. This physical process occurs at such small length scales that it is not captured by coarse resolution numerical models of weather and climate. A series of experiments is presented that model the generation...
The Monaco Glacier reaches sea level on the north coast of Spitzbergen, Norway. The fresh water flowing under the glacier mixes with sea water and creates the turbulence visible in the photograph. This brings sea life to the surface and attracts thousands of sea birds to the area. August 2008
