The ephemeral beauty of turbulent flows: This figure shows the temperature dissipation rate, in false colors (light tones intense dark are small), from a snapshot of a bidimensional Rayleigh-Benard convective system at Ra=10^9 and Pr=1. The spatial resolution is 2048 x 4096 discretization points.
Babak's paper on convective melting is out, check it here: [PRF journal]

I co-organize a summer school with my colleagues Francois G. Schmitt and Stefano Berti. More infos @ http://active-turbulence.univ-lille.fr
I have visited Daniela Mansutti and Andrea Scagliarini at Istituto per le Applicazioni del Calcolo "Mauro Picone"
