Propagation through and Characterization of Distributed Volume Turbulence and Atmospheric Phenomena



Propagation through and Characterization of Distributed Volume Turbulence and Atmospheric Phenomena

07 - 11 June 2015
Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel, Arlington, Virginia, USA

pcDVT is a forum for the presentation of research in the physics of light propagating through the atmosphere to include distributed volume turbulence,  gravity waves, vortex shedding, stably stratified turbulence, persistent eddies, and cloud /aerosol/vapor scattering and absorption, as well as characterization of these phenomena. 

In this forum, we discuss the physics of light propagating through the atmosphere to include not only distributed volume turbulence but also large scale meteorological phenomena such as gravity waves, vortex shedding, stably stratified turbulence, persistent eddies, and cloud /aerosol/vapor scattering and absorption. Since propagating through distributed volume turbulence and atmospheric phenomena is a new field of research, this forum expedites collaboration and cultivates a multidisciplinary exchange of information designed to expand our understanding of the full complexity and interactions of distributed volume effects, drawing upon the most recent results from the fields of boundary layer physics, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, meteorology, adaptive optics, laser sciences and singular optics.  The forum highlights the creation of photonic orbital angular momentum in light propagating through distributed volume turbulence; a most interesting application of this research is to astrophysics, where this topical area is applied to turbulence assemblages of molecules or atoms (TAMA), molecular clouds and the interstellar medium.
