This book is a formal presentation of lectures given at the 1987 Summer School on Turbulence, held at the National Center for Atmospheric Research under the auspices of the Geophysical Turbulence Program. The lectures present in detail certain of the more challenging and interesting current turbulence research problems in engineering, meteorology, plasma physics, and mathematics. The lecturers-Uriel Frisch (Mathematics), Douglas Lilly (Meteorology), David Montgomery (Plasma Physics), and Hendrik Tennekes (Engineering) — are distinguished for both their research contributions and their abilities to communicate these to students with enthusiasm. This book is distinguished by its simultaneous focus on the fundamentals of turbulent flows (in neutral and ionized fluids) and on a presentation of current research tools and topics in these fields.
