  Information - NP6.04 Geophysical Laboratory and Field Experiments

Event Information
Laboratory experiments modelling geophysical situations cover many
separate disciplines within Geophysics. This session aims to provide
a platform to present experimental techniques and data analysis
methods independently of the narrower discipline to which they are
applied. This way, established techniques may be introduced to new
problems, or they may be improved by combining ideas from separate
areas. Contributions are welcome to discuss any aspect of laboratory
models in Geophysics, ranging from the conceptual design and the
technical execution of the experiments to the analysis and
interpretation of their results. While the session is part of the
Nonlinear Process section, nonlinearity is not essential within the
scope of this session. The session aims to cover a range of
approaches in thematic groupings. One thematic focus will be devoted
to detached shear layers in rotating fluids. These includes, for
example, studies of transport in stable layers such as the Stewartson
layer, instabilities of such shear regions, or coherent structures
occurring in them. Another theme explores alternatives to the
mainstream rotating/stratifed fluid-tank experiments. These could be
addressing the use of novel fluids to model geophysical flow
parameters, or address less common processes, for example flow in
porous media.
