Fluid Dynamics of Weather and Climate
The rotation and gravity of the Earth, together with the pole-to-equator temperature difference drive a rich specrum of flows that characterizes the weather and climate of the planet. Imagery of simple laboratory experiments will be used to illustrate the different flow regimes and the underlying dynamics. Their relations to the real-world phenomena (e.g., hurricanes, jetstreams, storms, fronts, etc.) will be discussed. The talk will likely appeal to physics and math majors, but anyone interested in the working of weather and climate is welcome to attend.
