When I first arrived at CTR as a postdoctoral fellow in 1992, I could feel deep rumblings beneath my feet. I knew that California was famous for its seismic activity but this was of a different kind. It originated from something called the “Dynamic Model”: the greatest idea in turbulence modeling in a long time that “worked” but did not make sense. I would like to talk
about our efforts to make sense of it all and the intellectual atmosphere at CTR in the 1990’s.
