Description générale

The aim of this interdisciplinary workshop is to gather specialists from different communities interested in equatorial dynamics, from linear effects to fully turbulent flows, from laboratory experiments to atmospheric dynamics and astrophysics. We intend to fertilize new collaborations and foster exchange of ideas between these different fields.

Topics of the workshop include:

  • Equatorial waves and jets in astrophysical and geophysical flows (general, theory)
  • The quasi-biennial oscillation: lab experiments, the atmosphere of the Earth, and stars
  • Equatorial superrotation: idealized atmospheres, planets of the solar system, and exoplanets
  • Tropical variability and the Madden-Julian Oscillation

Registration is free but mandatory, with a maximum of 70 participants. Participants will be given the opportunity to present their results in a poster session.
