Inverse Cascade in Hydrodynamic Turbulence and its Role in Solar Granulation
Self-organization i.e. the formation of large ordered structures in a turbulent medium is a consequence of inverse cascade where energy preferentially transfers towards large spatial scales. It is envisaged that this may be one way of explaining solar granulation at various scales.
