The amount of data encompassed by the global climate in its entirety, from its winds and temperature conditions to shifting formations of cloud, is almost unimaginably complex. Layer in the ever-evolving small- and large-scale interactions involved, and the thought of creating a model of the entire Earth system seems beyond possibility.
Turbulent combustion is just that. Jet engines and high-power furnaces produce a great amount of energy, along with its byproduct: emissions in the form of soot and other polluting materials.
Energy is central to civilization as we know it. It’s also environmentally untenable in its current state. This is an issue Professor Emily Carter, the Gerhard R. Andlinger Professor in Energy and the Environment, is working to solve. Working across disciplines, Dr.
