    Lagrangian Coherent Structures – continued

    KST 14:00 – 15:00 | Join us online click here

    We will continue to discuss Lagrangian Coherent Structures, in particular focusing on the impact of hyperbolic points, the braking of transport barriers, and the dispersion of larvae around Hawaii.

    Lagrangian Coherent Structures

    KST 14:00 – 15:00 | Join us online click here

    Topics covered include: Eulerian versus Lagrangian approaches, particle trajectories and phase space, material surfaces and invarient manifolds, stable and unstable manifolds and their detection.

    Properties of turbulence

    KST 14:00 – 15:00 | Join us online click here

    We will consider some basic properties of turbulent flows. Topics covered include: The Kolmogorov and Batchelor scales, flow instabilities, the turbulent kinetic energy equation, inferring turbulent diffusivity from measurements of […]

    Can state-dependent effects of natural forcing resolve mismatches of simulated and reconstructed climate variability?

    KST 16:00 – 17:00 | Join us online click here

    Temperature variability at the last Glacial Maximum was higher than during the Holocene. Can we extrapolate from this to a state-dependency of Earth surface temperature variability? Another explanation could be […]

    Relative dispersion

    KST 14:00 – 15:00 | Join us online click here

    Today we will consider the dispersion of pairs of particles and contrast the dispersion of particles in 3D and 2D turbulence.

    Diffusion: a Lagrangian framework

    KST 14:00 – 15:00 | Join us online click here

    Today we will consider dispersion in a Lagrangian framework and look at the classic GI Taylor paper “Dispersion by continuous movements”. We introduce the concept of anomalous dispersion, an example […]

    Model simulations of El Niño

    KST 14:00 – 15:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) – Integrated mechanical engineering building

    Southern Oscillation (ENSO) are usually evaluated by comparing them to observations using a multitude of metrics. However, this approach can not provide an objective summary metric of model performance. Here we […]
