Séminaire IRPHE

Laboratory Models of Planetary Jet Formation

Orateur : Jonathan Aurnou
Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences, UCLA

Résumé : Strong east-west directed, banded jets have long been observed in the atmospheres of the gas planets. However, it is still unknown how they are driven and to what depth they extend down into the planets. Are they driven by insolation or from internal heat of planetary formation ? Are they relatively shallow atmospheric structures or do they extend down to Mbar depths ? In this talk, I will present end-member models of planetary jet formation and then discuss a unique experiment being developed at IRPHE that seeks to generate, for the first time in the laboratory, strong zonal jet flows comparable to those found on the gas planets.

Date et lieu :le Mardi 23 Juin 2015 à 11h00, salle de séminaire IRPHE
