Ocean Turbulence Workshop in South Africa Lead by Rockland Microstructure Specialists

  “UKZN’s Department of Civil Engineering held the first ever workshop on Ocean Turbulence in South Africa. The workshop was facilitated by Derek Stretch, Professor for Environmental Fluid Mechanics, with funding provided through an Office of Naval Research (ONR) global grant. Turbulence at microstructure scales (a centimetre or less) is an important mechanism for mixing in the […]
