The Centre maintains a
Geophysical Fluid Dynamics laboratory. This is equipped with a rotating table and convection tank designed
for the simulation of extra-tropical and tropical circulations.
In addition, the convection tank allows for the study of jets, plumes and thermals. The laboratory has a laser Doppler anemometer for flow velocity measurements,
a laser based flow visualization facility, and
a CCD camera for recording and studying the evolution of fluid flows.
Other facilities in the Centre include :
