  Report - NP6.06 Astrophysical Turbulence and Shocks, Plasmas and High Mach Number Flows (co-listed in PS)

The sessions NP-6.06. on Astrophysical Turbulence and Shocks, Plasmas and High Mach Number Flows (co-listed in PS) at the EGU G.A. meeting, were integrated
within the rest of the NP6 sessions dealing with several aspects of Turbulence;
Mixing and NL Waves.

The many uncertainties of non equilibrium, and often non-homogeneous and non stationary turbulent processes were highlighted, when astrophysical aplications , such as fusion related research, or compressible [hich Ma] are sought.

The research on experiments with Lasers in LULI was presented by
Michael Koning (LULI Team; Paris; France]
Koenig, M.; The LULI Laboratory Team
Laboratory Astrophysics Experiments At LULI Laboratory

Other theoretical and experimental research taking place at the Comisariat du Energie Atomique in France were presented by
Bouquet, S.; Gandeboeuf, P.; Pailhories, P.
Rayleigh-Taylor Instabilities and the Buoyancy-Drag Equation
Falize, E.; Bouquet, S.; Michaut, C.
Radiative Cooling and Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability in Astrophysics

While some very interesting Explosion related experiments at Atarzamas were
presented by Evgeny Meshkov (Russian Federal Nuclear Center -Institute of Experimental Physics (VNIIEF) and Sarov Physical and Technical Institute (SarFTI)Russia.

Development of Semi-Empirical Turbulent Mixing Model for Calculating MHD-Parameters of Supernova Remnants

A review on the topology of 2D instabilities, leading to simetric [Rayleigh Taylor] or antisimetric [Kelvin- Hemlholtz] instabilities and to long lived solitary vortex [rings or solitary disturbances] was given and their dimension constrains were explained by Robert Kiehn (Texas University, Texas, USA. leading to interesting discussions on mixing problems relevant to shocks and fusion.

Due to the very multidisciplinary nature of the shock induced turbulence and
Astrophysical implications, the participants of NP. 6.05 and NP 6.06 as well as other related works are encouraged to present their results at a special issue of the Nonlinear Processes in Geophysics Journal before November 2007.

This issue will be edited by J.M Redondo [UPC Barcelona] and S.Dalziel [DAMTP, Univ. Cambridge] following the usual paper standard and procedure of the NPG Journal.

A special issue of NPG will be edited with selected papers of Laboratory and field experiments related to Turbulence and Mixing.

Interested authors of NP6 and other related sessions are advised to contact to the editors Jose M. Redondo and Stuart Dalziel [UPC, Barcelona and DAMTP, Cambridge]
