    The interaction of turbulent flows with the external structure of ground vehicles generates uncomfortable noise and a lot of attention is devoted to find new mechanisms for its suppression. The present work is concerned ...
  • Jupiter’s Great Red Spot: strong interactions with incoming anticyclones in 2019 

    Sanchez Lavega, Agustin; Anguiano Arteaga, A; Iñurrigarro, Peio; García Melendo, Enrique José; Legarreta, Jon J.; Hueso, Ricardo; Sanz Requena, Jose Francisco; Perez Hoyos, Santiago; Mendikoa, Iñigo; Soria Guerrero, Manel; Rojas, Jose Félix; Andrés Carcasona, Marc; Prat Gasull, Arnau; Ordoñez Etxebarria, I; Rogers, John H; Foster, Clyde; Mizumoto, S; Casely, A; Hansen, C. J.; Orton, Glenn S.; Momary, T; Eichstädt, Gerald (Wiley, 2021-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    Jupiter’s Great Red Spot (GRS), a giant anticyclone, is the largest and longest-lived of all the vortices observed in planetary atmospheres. During its history, the GRS has shrunk to half its size since 1879, and encountered ...

    Remotely sensed optical data are fundamental to be integrated into biogeochemical models, since the key role of the optical properties on lower trophic dynamics. In this paper, it is shown how ocean optics satellite products ...
  • Discharge coefficients of a heavy suspension nozzle 

    Río Cano, Carlos; Monshi Tousi, Navid; Bergadà Granyó, Josep Maria; Comas Amengual, Ángel (MDPI, 2021-03-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    The suspensions used in heavy vehicles often consist of several oil and two gas chambers. In order to perform an analytical study of the mass flow transferred between two gas chambers separated by a nozzle, and when ...
  • Tychonis: a model-based approach to define and search for geometric events in space 

    Llopis, Marcel; Soria Guerrero, Manel; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier (2021-06)
    Article
