The aim of this work is to prove an existence and uniqueness result of Kato–Fujita type for the Navier–Stokes equations, in vorticity form, in 2D and 3D, perturbed by a gradient-type multiplicative Gaussian noise (for sufficiently small initial vorticity). These equations are considered in order to model hydrodynamic turbulence. The approach was motivated by a recent result by Barbu and Röckner (J Differ Equ 263:5395–5411, 2017) that treats the stochastic 3D Navier–Stokes equations, in vorticity form, perturbed by linear multiplicative Gaussian noise. More precisely, the equation is transformed to a random nonlinear parabolic equation, as in Barbu and Röckner (2017), but the transformation is different and adapted to our gradient-type noise. Then, global unique existence results are proved for the transformed equation, while for the original stochastic Navier–Stokes equations, existence of a solution adapted to the Brownian filtration is obtained up to some stopping time.
