Atmosphere Ocean Science Student Seminar
Gravity wave breaking: dynamic vs convective instability
Speaker: Oliver Buhler, Professor, Courant Institute
Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1314
Date: Friday, October 19, 2018, 3:45 p.m.
To lighten the mood in our Friday seminar, I will present my own first PhD student talk as given originally on April 22nd, 1993.
The topic was/is the breaking of internal gravity waves in the atmosphere, and whether Kelvin-Helmholtz instability or convective instability is more important in this process. Trigger warning: this will include vintage transparencies and no movies.
