Professor Michael McIntyre
Professor Michael McIntyre (FRS, Emeritus Professor of Atmospheric Dynamics)
Research Interests:
I have worked with Douglas Gough and Toby Wood on the solar tachocline, and more recently with Stephen Thomson on Jupiter's jetstreams. We have made significant inroads into both problems thanks to recognizing the differences, as well as the similarities, between the astrophysical problems and certain terrestrial problems involving stratified turbulence and jetstreams.
