Scale-dependent colocalization in a population of gyrotactic swimmers.

Abstract

We study the small scale clustering of gyrotactic swimmers transported by a turbulent flow, when the intrinsic variability of the swimming parameters within the population is considered. By means of extensive numerical simulations, we find that the variety of the population introduces a characteristic scale R^{*} in its spatial distribution. At scales… (More)
