As the Atlantic hurricane season enters its second day, forecasters predict fewer storms this year. But, they warn a quiet season could still produce a devastating hurricane. Researchers are creating their own storms in a state of the art lab that could end up saving lives,...Read More
Physical labs are great venues for instrument development and testing since the conditions are controlled and repeatable. We've been working for some time on developing a surface Lagrangian drifter for use in various types of field experiments. This work has been spear-headed by the CARTHE research group, based...Read More
During June, we used the ASIST tank to finish the instrument cross-calibration of turbulence measurement by studying the classic grid turbulence. This is the first step of the NSF sponsored project on temporal and spatial scaling of dissipation under non-breaking surface waves- a collaborative effort...Read More
