  Information - NP6.07 Turbulence in particle-laden flows

Event Information
Many natural phenomena and environmental problems taking place in the atmosphere,
oceans, rivers etc. involve particle-laden flows. Among the many examples we mention:
rain droplets formation and transport in cloud physics, sediment-transport
in rivers and coastal areas, spreading of pollutants, dust in urban environments.
Despite their importance many fundamental questions about the modelization of
such multiphase-flows are still open such as: modelization and characterization
particle distribution (clustering), correlation between particle motion and flow
structures, two-way coupling between particles and flow, sedimentation of particles
and effect of flow structures on sedimentation, development of simplified models
for pollutants transport etc. Since the subject is per se cross-disciplinary,
the aim of this session is to bring together scientists doing theory,
experiments and numerical simulations of geophysical particle-laden
flows to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience.
