Nearly all large-scale geophysical flows are turbulent, while being subject a strong background rotation and/or stratification. This rotation or stratification allows an incompressible fluid to sustain internal wave motion, maintained by the Coriolis and buoyancy forces. Thus large-scale geophysical flows are characterised by the interplay between waves and turbulence. In particular the waves organise and shape the turbulence by dispersing energy in the form of wave packets. In this talk I focus on the case of rotating turbulence.
