Climate and Fluid Physics


The Climate and Fluid Physics group carries out research on fluid flow problems relevant to Earth, using both numerical modelling and laboratory experiments in the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (GFD) laboratory.

We are interested in problems ranging from ocean circulation to ice melting, from convection to waves and turbulence and from lava flows to climate dynamics.  

Climate and Fluid Physics Seminars are held sporadically, sometimes on a monthly basis. We also hold weekly group meetings. A full schedule of all our activities is available here.

Climate and Fluid Physics is a node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. You can find us in the Jaeger 7 Building.
