Geophysical Fluid Dynamics

In Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, by using a hierarchy of models, from simplified quasi-geostrophic and rotating shallow water to full primitive equations models, we investigate fundamental aspects of dynamical phenomena in the atmosphere and ocean. We work on vortex dynamics, instabilities of stratified and rotating flows, geophysical turbulence, nonlinear wave dynamics, wave- wave, wave-vortex, and wave-mean interactions.
