Turbulent Mixing Processes in the Earth System

Group Leader:Opens window for sending emailJuan Pedro Mellado

Atmospheric dynamics compound very diverse multi-scale complex phenomena, from synoptic-scale motions to small-scale turbulence interlinked through chemistry, radiation and clouds. Turbulence is the focus of this Max Planck Research Group. Our goal is to improve our current understanding of geophysical turbulence and its role in the susceptibility of the earth system. The tools that we use are theory and simulations. [more]
