Vortices and jets in planetary cores

4 December 2020
Celine Guervilly

Convection is the main heat transport process in the liquid cores of planets and the primary energy source for planetary magnetic fields. These convective motions are thought to be turbulent and strongly constrained by rotation. In this talk, I will discuss the large-scale flows (zonal jets and vortices) that form in this rapidly-rotating turbulent regime, which we explore with numerical models.
