    What we know and don't know about the ocean circulation and ice melting around Antarctica
    The Antarctic ice sheet is losing mass increasingly rapidly and could contribute several tens of centimetres of sea-level rise by 2100. In this presentation I will review our understanding of the southern ocean circulation, which (we know) is controlling ice melting around Antarctica and driving the retreat of the (...)
  • Séminaire PMMH - Etienne Jambon-Puillet, LadhyX

    Pendant drops on the underside of wet surfaces : growth, motion and solidification
    Pendant drops spontaneously appear on the underside of wet surfaces through the Rayleigh-Taylor instability. Due to their detrimental effect on coatings and their tendency to drip, several strategies have been developed to avoid their formation and rationalized with linear stability analysis. I will first briefly (...)

    Vendredi 31 mai de 11h00 à 12h00 - Salle réunion PMMH 1
    Earthquake statistical properties : an explanation for the distribution of magnitude and for the existence of aftershocks
    Earthquakes in nature follow several statistical properties. In particular, the distribution of energy released by an earthquake (Gutenberg-Richter's law) and the frequency of aftershocks after a large event (Omori's law) are both power-laws. By studying several earthquake models, we have shown that the (...)

    1D confinement controls cell shape and migration
    Pericytes are mural cells of the microvasculature, they wrap around small vessels, support the vessels mechanically and participate in blood flow regulation. Pericytes are distinguished by two main characteristics ; first their distinct morphology, which has been likened to a “bump on a log”, as they present long (...)
Information for the speakers

The audience is composed of people with rather heterogeneous backgrounds including specialists in solids, fluids, granular flows, statistical physics... so the idea is to keep your talk understandable by people not necessarily working in your field... The seminar time slot runs from 11am to noon so the best is to make the talk last around 45 minutes to leave some time for discussion.
