Dr. Venayagamoorthy received the Frenkial Award by American Physical Society


Dr. Karan Venayagamoorthy has received the prestigious Frenkial Award from the American Physical Society (APS) for his paper, “Relevance of the Thorpe length scale in stably stratified turbulent flow,” published in 2013 in the prestigious journal, Physics of Fluids.

The citation for the award reads, “For new and significant insights into scaling laws for stratified turbulence with potentially broad impact in the area of environmental flows.” The award will be presented to Karan at the APS meeting in San Francisco in November 2014, which brings together about 3000 fluid mechanics researchers from around the world every year and is the largest and most popular fluid mechanics conference in the world.
