The aim of this research line is to understand the dynamics of preturbulent flows and the transition to fully developed turbulence. As a natural extension of this, it also addresses problems related to the nonlinear dynamics of waves, complex systems and pattern formation. Most of the research is carried out in the fields of geophysics, oceanography, atmospheric dynamics and environmental fluid dynamics, although the mathematical modelling of waves, fronts, pulses and defects in physical and biological systems is also currently the subject of research. Examples of current research include thermal convection, turbulence in stratified fluids, flows in rotating systems, turbulent diffusion and mixing, sediment transport, gravity currents, etc. The most frequently used techniques in theoretical work are direct numerical simulation, normal form reduction and amplitude-type equations. The most widely used technique in practical work is the digital image processing of data obtained in laboratory experiments.
