Convective and Shear Flow Turbulence with Rotation

Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 329)


As an introduction to this section we present an extension of the discussion of Mory [1] to include a case of more general geophysical significance, where the source of the initial turbulent motion is a natural one rather than the rather artificial case of turbulence generated by an oscillating grid. Firstly we give a somewhat different argument to show the effect of rotation on turbulent fluctuations. Referring to figure 1, consider a typical turbulent eddy of scale, l, (the integral scale) and characteristic velocty, u′, (the rms velocity fluctuation).
