If you have a question about this talk, please contact Mustapha Amrani. The Nature of High Reynolds Number Turbulence Several existing sets of smaller-scale ocean and atmospheric data appear to display Kolmogorov-Obukov-Corrsin inertial ranges in horizontal spectra for length scales up to at least a few hundred meters. It is argued here that these data are inconsistent with the assumptions for these inertial range theories. Instead, it is hypothesized that the dynamics of stratified turbulence explain these data. If valid, these dynamics may also explain the behavior of strongly stratified flows in similar dynamic ranges of other geophysical flows.
