Inertial particles (i.e. with mass and of finite size) immersed in a fluid in motion are unable to adapt their velocities to the carrying flow and thus they have been the subject of much interest in fluid mechanics. In this paper we consider an ocean setting with inertial particles elastically connected forming a network that floats at the interface with the atmosphere... (read more)
