Status: Dormant (2018-) (Active (2016-2018))

PI: L-A Couston

Leading question: How much can we say about a planetary object from the movement of fluids ?

Planned investigation: QBO flows in oceans

Planned investigation: QBO flows in planetary cores

Past investigation: Fundamentals of QBO flows

  1. What controls the emergence of QBO flows ?
  2. How is the variability of QBO flows related to the wave and turbulence dynamics ?
