Workshop on Fluid Dynamics in Earth and Planetary Sciences (FDEPS)

This workshop is held on a once-a-year basis to discuss various aspects of fluid dynamics in the fields of earth and planetary sciences. The aim is to promote fluid dynamics to present a function as one of the fundamental languages to describe and understand the geophysical phenomena. Intensive discussion between the researchers in the fields of mathematics, fluid dynamics, computer sciences, and earth and/or planetary sciences is greatly encouraged.
