Milestone 2017

During June and July, we used the Coriolis platform for other experiments of the project MILESTONE (MIxing and LEngth Scales in Stratified Turbulence). Antoine Campagne, Miguel Calpe-Linares, Samuel Viboud and Thomas Valran participated to this experimental campaign.

This time, we focused on the measurement of the mixing efficiency in the regime of strongly stratified turbulence. We also tried to force internal waves by dragging long horizontal cylinders.
