Extrasolar Planet Seminar
|Storms and Jets on Giant Planets
Dr. James Cho - Queen Mary University London (currently on sabbatical leave at Princeton)
The structure and stability of storms and jets are important for characterizing the large-scale flow dynamics and variability – ostensibly, the ‘weather and climate’ – of planets. In this presentation, some crucial aspects of accurately modeling the dynamics of planetary atmospheres are discussed, taking us into the exciting universe of vortices, fronts, waves, turbulence, and magnetic fields (and their interactions) in differentially-rotating, stratified environments.
