Marine Turbulence Laboratory
Head: Prof. Viktor Zhurbas
Department of Coastal and Mesoscale Oceanology
The main directions of study:
Ocean microstructure: turbulence, double diffusion, differential mixing.
Modeling of mesoscale processes in the ocean in the framework of eddy-resolving models.
Intrusive stratification of ocean fronts: modeling, analysis of empirical data.
Simulation of deep-sea oil spills.
Lateral mixing in the ocean according to drifters.
