Assistant Professor Department of Earth and Space Sciences

Yufeng Lin obtained his Bachelor's degree from the Wuhan University in 2007, and his Master's degree from the Peking University in 2010. He then moved to the Institute of Geophyiscs at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, for his PhD, and completed in March 2015. Prior to joining the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at SUSTech in September 2019, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge, UK.

Personal Profile

Yufeng Lin obtained his Bachelor's degree in Geophysics from Wuchan University in 2007, and his Master's degree from Peking University in 2010. He then moved to the Institute of Geophyiscs at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, for his PhD, and completed in March 2015. Prior to joining the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at SUSTech, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge, UK. Dr Lin's research interests broadly lie in geophysical and astrophysical fluid dynamics, including dynamos, convection and tides in rotating stars and planets.

    Ohmic dissipation in the Earth's outer core resulting from the free inner core nutation YufengLin* & Gordon I.Ogilvie Highlights The magnetic field alters the propagation of inertial waves induced by the free inner core nutation. Ohmic dissipation becomes insensitive to the fluid viscosity at very low Ekman numbers. Ohmic dissipation is too weak to account for the […]
