### Shallow water height as vertical coordinate

In atmospheric physics we use often a variety of vertical coordinates, $z$ the height above some reference surface, or $r$ as distance from the planetary center. However sometimes it simplifies the ...

### Over what scales can we begin to apply fluid dynamics to accurately model properties of the mantle?

Over what size temporal/spatial scales do geophysicists and geodynamicists begin to apply fluid dynamics to model the mantle rather than elastic/plastic deformation theory?

### What is the simplest meteorological model to operate?

For teaching purposes I am looking for an atmospheric model that can be easily installed and the input data can be easily read and prepared. Preferably I would like to run a global low resolution ...

### Godfrey's island rule (stream function in multiply connected domains)

In this paper, the authors detail the methods to calculate the stream function $\psi$ from velocity data in the case of the global ocean (i.e., multiply connected domains). The general idea is to use ...

### Link between different ways of modeling permeability

The most famous equation describing the permeability $k$ of a soil is the Kozeny-Carman equation: $$k = \frac{\phi}{8}r^2 \approx \frac{\phi}{c}\left(\frac{V}{S}\right)^2$$ $\phi$: porosity V: pore ...
I have a series of micro-tomography images of a porous material (received from experimental partners) with a resolution 10 $\mu m$ with total size 1cm $\times$ 1cm. Porosity of the porous material ...
