# Structure of unsteady stably stratified turbulence with mean shear

@inproceedings{Hanazaki2004StructureOU, title={Structure of unsteady stably stratified turbulence with mean shear}, author={Hideshi Hanazaki and Julian C. R. Hunt}, year={2004} }

The statistics of unsteady turbulence with uniform stratification N (Brunt–V¨¨¨ frequency) and shear α(= dU1/dx3) are analysed over the entire time range (0 0a ndRi > 0.25 respectively, oscillatory momentum and positive and negative density fluxes develop. Above a critical value of Ricrit(∼ 0.3), their average values are persistently countergradient. This structural change in the turbulence is the primary mechanism whereby stable stratification reduces the fluxes and the production of variances… CONTINUE READING
