Length scales for the Navier–Stokes equations on a rotating sphere
Kyrychko, Yuliya N. and Bartuccelli, Michele V. (2004) Length scales for the Navier–Stokes equations on a rotating sphere Physics Letters A, 324 . pp. 2-3.
In this Letter we obtain the dissipative length scale for the Navier–Stokes equations on a two-dimensional rotating sphere S2. This system is a fundamental model of the large scale atmospheric dynamics. Using the equations of motion in their vorticity form, we construct the ladder inequalities from which a set of time-averaged length scales is obtained.
