  • Speaker: Eberhard Bodenschatz (Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization)
  • Host Department: Physics
  • Date: 04/10/2013
  • Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

  • Location: 340 West Hall

  • Description:

    After a careful introduction to the physics of turbulent flows and their relevance in nature and technology, I shall focus on what we can learn from following fluid or inertial (heavy) particles in the flow. I shall also introduce the Goettingen Turbulence Facility, our cloud-physics experiments on Germany's highest mountain the Zugspitze, and the recently established European High Performance Infrastructure.
