Turbulence and Turbulent Transport



Turbulence in a soap film. This beautiful experiment is done at the University of Pittsburgh, for more information visit their site

Turbulence in the ash plume of the Mt. Spurr volcano as it erupts. The turbulence speeds the mixing of the ash in the atmosphere and spreads it much more quickly then otherwise. For more information on Mt. Spurr see the USGS site.



Turbulence in the Sun (a fusion plasma). The turbulence in plasmas is very important for transporting heat and particles from one place to another, for example from the core of the sun to the edge. For more information on, and pictures of, the sun see the NASA site.
