"2D turbulence - Where do we stand?" by Robert Ecke
December 9, 2010 - 10:00am
Two dimensional turbulence is an idealization of real 3D systems with anisotropy caused by geometric confinement or body forcing. I will review the current state of understanding of 2D turbulent flows including specific theoretical predictions, numerical simulation results and experimental realizations of quasi-2D turbulent systems. Relevance to geophysical systems will be discussed.
