Turbulent heat transport in the ocean: do we even know what we do not know?
Thursday 17 September 2020, 12.30pm to 1.30pm BST
Recently, due not least to the proliferation of data obtained through direct observation, numerical simulation and laboratory experimentation, there has been an explosion in research activity directed at improving community understanding, modelling and parameterization of the subtle interplay between energy conversion pathways, turbulence, and irreversible mixing in the ocean. Nevertheless, there remain several leading-order open questions of great significance for this hugely complex, important and fascinating fluid dynamical challenge.
In this webinar Professor Colm-cille Caulfield will discuss how turbulence leads to the enhanced irreversible transport of heat in the world's oceans is a key area of uncertainty in climate modelling.
