Stochastic Turbulence Theory Applied to Quasigeostrophic Turbulence
The goal of the project on stochastic turbulence theory is to develop understanding of fully developed synoptic scale turbulence in baroclinic jets making use of stochastic dynamics to model the highly non-normal dynamical system underlying the turbulence.
