Since 2001, Lodovica Illari and John Marshall have worked to make rotating fluid dynamics more intuitive for undergraduate students studying weather and climate, using a demonstration aptly named Weather in a tank.The setup — a clear circular basin of water on a rotating platform that simulates Earth’s spin — illustrates weather phenomena such as atmospheric cyclones, fronts, jets, and ocean currents and eddies.
