Mixing of a passive substance in a turbulent flow. Colors correspond to the concentration of a passive scalar, such as small temperature variations, water vapor or carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The image is a two-dimensional snapshot taken from a three-dimensional simulation. The simulation is part of a series that investigates the dynamics of atmospheric turbulence with the goal of improving the understanding and prediction of weather and climate.
