Research
Shin-ichi Takehiro is working on geophysical fluid dynamics. His research interest covers all kinds of problems related to fluid motions in planetary surfaces and interiors (atmospheres, mantles and central cores), as well as problems of the Earth's atmosphere and ocean. He also develops technique and software of numerical methods in order to deal with various problems in geophysical fluid dynamics. Recent topics of his research are as follows.
1) Penetration of convection into a stable layer in general.
    Typical cases include vigorous mixing by turbulent convective motion,
    and slow penetration of columnar motion affected by rotation.
2) Thermal convection and MHD dynamos in rotating spherical shells.
3) Fluid motions in the Earth's inner core.
4) Two-dimensional turbulence on rotating spheres.
