Buoyant turbulence | AIChE

Buoyant turbulence

Generated by heating of the ground surface by the sun and is suppressed by cooling of the ground surface at night. Surface heating leads to the formation of buoyant thermal bubbles from the warm ground surface on sunny afternoons. The opposite effect happens during clear nights, when the surface cooling causes the suppression of turbulence.
