3-D Simulation of Turbulence in Protoplanetary Disks (video) San Francisco State University Share Print E-Mail Loading video... Caption A short animation showing how turbulent forces (the Coriolis Effect and vertical shear) mix up the layers of dust and gas orbiting young stars. This animation is taken from Joseph Barranco's 3-D simulations of turbulence in protoplanetary disks. Deep red indicates dust-rich gas. Deep blue indicates pure gas.
