Turbulent Poiseuille-Ekman flow at different rotation rates has been investigated. A series of direct numerical simulations has been conducted at various rotation rates for Reynolds number 180 based on the friction velocity in the non-rotating case. In this paper the results of both statistical and instantaneous eddy structures are presented and discussed briefly.
