# An identification of Energy Cascade in Turbulence by Orthonormal Wavelet Analysis

@article{Yamada1991AnIO, title={An identification of Energy Cascade in Turbulence by Orthonormal Wavelet Analysis}, author={Michio Yamada and Koji Ohkitani}, journal={Progress of Theoretical Physics}, year={1991}, volume={86}, pages={799-815} }

Orthonormal wavelet expansion method is applied to an analysis of atmospheric turbulence data which shows more than two decades of the inertial subrange spectrum. The result of the orthonor mal wavelet analysis of the turbulence data is discussed in comparison with those of an artificial random noise. The local wavelet spectra of turbulence show a characteristic structure. which is absent in the artificial random noise and is identified with the trace of the energy cascade process. The higher…

Two distinct aspects of the non-Gaussianity of the turbulent field are discussed: The nonzero derivative skewness is shown to be essentially a large-scale property, while intermittency measured by the flatness factor is basically a dissipation range phenomenon.
