SpinLab

University of California, Los Angeles

Hands-on simulation of fluid motion in a Polar Vortex, and other demonstrations of atmosphere flows and planet interiors

We study fluid motions that occur on and inside spinning planets. At our booth, participants will help us to carry out rotating fluids demonstrations and relate these to the motions we see planetary atmospheres and oceans.
