Abstract

One of the commonest forms of turbulent motion is the so-called thermal turbulence, which consists of fluctuations of the vertical air velocity due to the buoyancy forces acting on the air particles. Thus, thermal turbulence results from the development of atmospheric convection, i.e., vertical displacements of individual batches of air due to the difference between their density and that of the surrounding air.
