Physics of Aquatic Systems Laboratory APHYS
The interest in Physical Limnology as a subject of Environmental Fluid Dynamics is threefold:
- Physical processes as an avenue for understanding lake ecosystems,
- Management of natural water resources, and
- Lakes as natural scale-up “laboratories” for stratified environmental flow studies.
The goal of APHYS is perfectly summarized by this introduction extracted from the chapter “Physical Limnology” by A. Wüest and M. Schmid from the Handbook of Environmental Fluid Dynamics edited by H.J.S Fernando (2013).
