 The aim of the proposed Euromech colloquium is to gather together a critical mass of world-wide experts in the study of stratified turbulence, to highlight the main theoretical, experimental and computational challenges standing before us, and devise avenues for effective physical and technological advancement.
Contributions from researchers working in different fields of science and having a different background, from engineers to physicists, geophysicists and oceanographers, are therefore expected, and are supposed to foster new interdisciplinary collaborations that can ultimately lead to a leap forward in our understanding of stratified turbulence.
