McGowan Library Auditorium UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography Joseph Kuehl, Ph.D. Assistant Professor University of Delaware Description: The existence of multiple steady flow states in nonlinear fluid dynamic systems has been observed in many situations. Probably the most well known classical fluid dynamic example is the Coanda (Teapot) Effect, in which a slowly tilted teapot will spill. In oceanography, the discussion of multiple steady states is generally concerned with the density driven (thermohaline) overturning circulation which connects the upper and…
