Relationship between intermittency and stratification

A formal analogy exists between 2D turbulence and 3D turbulence with stratification and rotation. Although the effect of the rotation, to the scale typical of the turbulence, is negligible in the atmosphere, we have found a relationship between the behavior of the intermittency and that of the atmospheric stratification. In order to do that, the intermittency has been characterized through the flatness of the PDFs of velocity increments, for the smallest possible scale, present in our measurements.
