Laboratory experiments modelling geophysical situations cover many separate disciplines within Geophysics, at the same time it is important to design field experiments where the data quality allows non-linear methodologies. This session aims to provide a platform to present experimental techniques and data analysis methods independently of the narrower discipline to which they are applied. This way, established techniques may be introduced to new problems, or they may be improved by combining ideas from separate areas. Contributions are welcome to discuss any aspect of laboratory models and field data in Geophysics, ranging from the conceptual design and the technical execution of the experiments to the analysis and interpretation of their results. The session aims to cover a range of approaches in thematic groupings. Effects of body forces in environmental fluids. These includes, for example, instabilities of stratified shear regions, or coherent structures occurring in them. Another theme explores alternatives to the mainstream fluid-tank experiments. These could be addressing the use of novel fluids to model geophysical or astrophysical flow parameters including magnetohydrodinamic or thermoelectric driven flows, or address less common processes, for example flow in porous media, percolation, magma convection, etc...
