HRD Seminar – Prof. Rupert Klein, Freie Universität, Berlin, Germany – 8 March 2019

Prof. Klein presented a seminar titled “Multiscale asymptotics for strongly tilted tropical vortices”. ABSTRACT: The asymptotic theory for three-dimensional vortices in the gradient wind regime by Paeschke et al. (2012), JFM, vol. 701, 137--170 is revisited. The theory considers vortices that are nearly axisymmetric at each vertical level but involve relative horizontal displacements of the … Continue reading HRD Seminar – Prof. Rupert Klein, Freie Universität, Berlin, Germany – 8 March 2019
