  Report - NP6.05 Turbulence in the Atmosphere and Ocean (co-listed in AS & OS)

The papers presented at the session combined equally laboratory and field experiments, including some numerical simulations with relevant comparisons between the observations and the models. New advances in turbulent parametrizations and observational techniques now allow o extract much more
relevant information using PIV, Particle tracking, point and multipoint
velocimetry or other multiscale higher order techniques.
