Abstract [en]

Stably and strongly stratified turbulent flows have been studied by employing scaling analysis of the governing equations along the lines of [1], [2] and [3]. The scaling analysis suggests the existence of two different dynamical states. The parameter determining the state is R = ReF h 2, where Re and Fh are the Reynolds number and horizontal Froude number, respectively. If R≫1, viscous forces are negligible and the turbulence is strongly anisotropic but three-dimensional and causes a forward energy cascade. The vertical length scale lv scales as l v ∼ U/N (U is a horizontal velocity scale and N is the Brunt-Väisälä frequency). If R≪1, horizontal inertial forces are balanced by vertical viscous shearing and lv ∼ l hRe -1/2 (l h is a horizontal length scale). The scaling analysis has been confirmed by direct numerical simulations of homogeneous stratified turbulence. Spectra have been studied as well.
