Turbulence subject to a strong background rotation is common in both geophysics and astrophysics, with motion in planetary cores being the most striking example. It is well known that such turbulence is dominated by the formation of long-lived columnar cyclones, and these columnar vortices control most of the large scale processes, such as mixing and magnetic field generation. However, there is still no agreement as to how these cyclones form. In this seminar we provide a partial answer to this question.
