Fluid Mechanics of Planets and Stars

Invited Lecturers

Renaud Deguen (Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Villeurbanne Cedex, France)

6 lectures on: Turbulence and Fluid mechanics of planetary cores, including: the basics of 3D and 2D turbulence; formation of iron cores (fragmentation and turbulent mixing); inner core solidification and dynamics; dynamo action and planetary magnetic fields; and Alfven waves.


Benjamin Favier (CNRS, Marseille, France)

6 lectures on: Turbulence and Fluid mechanics of planetary cores, including: quasi-geostrophic, shallow water, stratified, and rotating turbulence; and the asymptotic regime of convection in rotating cores.


Michael Le Bars (CNRS, Marseille, France)

6 lectures on: Instabilities, Atmospheric/oceanic fluid mechanics, and Fluid mechanics of planetary cores, including: inertial instabilities driven by libration, precession and tides; their influence in planetary cores and oceans; and vortices and turbulence in the oceans and in the atmospheres of gas giants.


Daniel Lecoanet (Princeton University, USA)

5 lectures on: Waves in fluids and in stellar interiors, including: sound and MHD waves; interactions between convective and radiative zones in stars; wave driven angular momentum transport; and heat transfer in compressible flows.


Gordon Ogilvie (University of Cambridge, UK)

6 lectures on: Waves in fluids and in stellar interiors, including: inertial and internal gravity waves; excitation, propagation and dissipation of internal waves; tidal dissipation in stars and giant planets; and the role of inertial and internal gravity waves in stellar interiors.


Bruce Sutherland (University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada)

6 lectures on: Instabilities and Atmospheric/oceanic fluid mechanics, including: barotropic and baroclinic instabilities; the excitation of internal gravity waves in atmospheres and oceans; the propagation, reflection and destabilization of internal gravity waves; and mixing in stratified fluids.
