This video of turbulence and flow is mesmerizing

We recently visited the laboratory of Geno Pawlak, a professor of mechanical engineering here at the Jacobs School. Pawlak's laboratory is home to a flume, essentially a water tunnel, used to study different types of flow. Pawlak gave us a demonstration of the flume. Check out the video and prepare to be hypnotized.
Pawlak's research focuses on the turbulent mixing processes that happen at the coast and in estuaries.
