Convection in Nature
February 8-10, 2018

Program Organizers: Daniel Lecoanet (PCTS) & Nadir Jeevanjee (Geosciences)

Convection occurs throughout nature: in our atmosphere and oceans, in planetary cores, in stars, and in the atmospheres of other planets. This meeting will bring together experts on convection in different fields, to discuss the recent advances and major questions in each field. In each case, different physical effects influence the convection, such as the presence of moisture, adjacent stably stratified fluid, rotation, or magnetic fields. The goal of the meeting is to identify similarities in the convection in these different systems, and leverage the theoretical and observational results in a given field to address outstanding questions in other fields.

Registration has reached full capacity and is now closed.
