Astrophysical and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Research

Astrophysical and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Research

Our research group explores the operation of hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamics processes in a variety of contexts.

About

In the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics we explore the operation of hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamics processes in a variety of contexts, including:

  • the ocean and atmosphere
  • planets
  • stars
  • accretion discs
  • the interstellar medium
  • galaxy clusters

as well as in more idealised, generic, contexts.
