Advances in Turbulence XII
Since the ?rst meeting in Lyon in 1986, the biannual European Turbulence Conferences have provided an informative survey of the international e?orts in understanding turbulence in its fundamental and applied aspects. Now integrated into the conference cycles coordinated by the European Mechanics Society the meetings provide a regular forum for the exchange of ideas and the discussion of the latest developments. The more recent conferences in Barcelona (2000), Southampton (2002), Trondheim (2004), and Porto (2007) have attracted several hundred participants from 30 and more countries. The 12th meeting in this series, ETC 12, which was held in Marburg September 7-10, 2009, continues this tradition. Researchers from 34 countries submitted 336abstractstotheconference.
