Document Type: Journal Paper


Examples of velocity concentrations or jets in fluid systems; systems are discussed in which vorticity is present or is generated by density variations; typical jet streams of atmosphere are those related to Gulf Stream and Equatorial Undercurrent; similar phenomena were created in laboratory by using rotating and heated fluids to simulate large scale features and by using salt water mixtures in channels to simulate smaller scale motions; conclusions.
