Read about our recent work on planktonic population dynamics around an obstacle in open flow. It’s Alice Jaccod PhD work “Predator-prey plankton dynamics in turbulent wakes behind islands”, in collaboration with S. Chibbaro and S. Berti . Now published in Phys. Rev. Fluids [https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevFluids.6.103802] and also available on Arxiv [ https://arxiv.org/abs/2105.05647 ].
The last preprint on Himani’s PhD work is out: Statistical properties of two-dimensional elastic turbulence, Himani Garg, Enrico Calzavarini and Stefano Berti , http://arxiv.org/abs/2104.08951
In the media: on Phys.org “Breaking the ice on melting and freezing” (nov. 2020)
We have just wrapped up into a preprint, available on Arxiv http://arxiv.org/abs/2012.05571, our collaborative study on the dynamics motion of tiny non-spherical non-homogeneous particles in a turbulent flow. In the best tradition of modern science, we try to combine experiments, numerical simulations and some calculus prediction.
A short illustrative movie of the experiment is available here [Linfeng’s movie]
Wenwei’s paper on the competing effects of chemical reactions and turbulent advection is out, check it here: [@PRF journal]
