Free Surface Hydrodynamics Laboratory

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

FUNCTION: Investigates processes and interactions at the air-sea interface, and compares measurements to numerical simulations and field data. Typical phenomena of interest include breaking waves, subsurface turbulence, bubble dynamics, aerosol production, surfactant effects, and heat and gas transport. Special emphasis is placed on determining surface expressions of subsurface flows by using infrared methods.DESCRIPTION: The laboratory has a large wave tank with dimensions 10 (L) x 2.5 (W) x 1 (H) meters which is fitted with a computer controlled wavemaker. A grid turbulence generator is also available.INSTRUMENTATION: The lab is equipped with two high sensitivity infrared cameras, a high speed video system, a particle image velocimetry system, and a Langmuir trough.
