NCAR's Turbulence Numerics Team -- TNT

Turbulence refers to the complex behavior of fluid flow that happens at many different scales and in many different physical systems. One practical hallmark of turbulence is that small-scale motion can organize into larger scale features, such as eddies or vortices, and affect the flow at much larger scales.

The Turbulence Numerics Team (TNT) is complementary to the Geophysical Turbulence Program (GTP) and is focused on the accurate simulation and understanding of turbulence for fluids, such as the atmosphere and for charged flows in the presence of magnetic fields. TNT research emphasizes simplified physical systems that still reproduce the complexity and multi-scale properties associated with turbulent flow.

TNT is administratively housed in the Institute for Mathematics Applied to Geosciences (IMAGe) of NCAR at the Center Green Lab in beautiful Boulder, CO.
