|Stand Mécanique des fluides et complexité dans la
dynamique de l'atmosphère
Stefano Berti and Enrico Calzavarini
Myself explaining convection cells in the atmosphere.
Enrico performing a simple experiment illustrating the basic physical mechanism of thermal convection.
|In this experiment a convection cell
is created in a box containing water. The fluid is cooled on the bottom
left side (through contact with ice) and warmed on the bottom right
side (through contact with hot water). To visualize the fluid flow,
some dye is added to water. (Thanks to Anselmo Pereira)
