IMA Conference on Turbulence, Waves and Mixing
The theme of this conference is to discuss, with review lectures and contributed papers, the ongoing developments of research in ‘turbulence, waves and mixing’ and their applications in industry, environment and geo/astro and mathematical physics.

Type of Event: Conference, International

Our understanding and the fundamental questions about 
turbulence and mixing have kept developing since O. 
Reynolds and Boussinesq made turbulence a subject in 
Pioneers such as Taylor, Prandtl, Richardson (of King’s 
College), Kolmogorov (his paper was published 75 years 
ago!) and others developed the dynamical and statistical 
approaches. Conceptual developments and advances in 
practical modelling and prediction   during the past 75 
years, have benefitted from 3-dimensional measurement 
techniques and computer simulations  at very high 
Reynolds number  (>10 5), so that for example patterns, 
organised eddy structures, particle trajectories and 
conditional analysis  can  be better quantified and 
applied in practice. Papers at the conference cover a 
wide swath of topics from large scale instabilities that 
generate turbulence to small scale eddies that dissipates 
Research into the interactions between turbulence and 
waves in engineering and geophysics, which are equally 
interesting and  controversial,   are also included in 
the conference, such as advances in water waves, KdV, 
solitons, Tsunami and Air-Sea interactions.    

This conference is being supported by Cambridge 
Environmental Research Consultants (CERC).
