Turbulent fountains form whenever the momentum of energetic vertical releases of fluid are opposed by buoyancy forces. They occur in the oceans and atmosphere, and are utilised in the ventilation and heating of buildings. Recent advances in the understanding of these fountains will be presented; focusing on classifying their rich and varied behaviour, and examining fundamental scaling arguments which inform as to the fountain’s bulk dynamics.
