  2. For solid-body rotating flow*, Governing equations In general, N-S : Coriolis force Centrifugal force * All quantities here are relative to the rotating frame. * Centrifugal force * Coriolis force (angular momentum) * Nonlinear term

  16. “Fast-fast-fast” resonant triadic interactions Instability assumption (Waleffe92): energy transfer is from the mode whose coefficient is opposite to the other two. One transfer function is negative and the other two are positive. If we normalize three wave numbers by the middle one,

  37. “Slow-fast-fast” triadic interactions * Energy from non-resonant triads into small wavenumbers decreases with Rossby number.

  38. Conclusions • The rate of two-dimensionalization of 3D rotating flow decreases when Rossby number decreases. • Slow-mode energy spectrum approaches and its energy flux is closer to a constant. • The vertically averaged velocity and the solution of 2D-3C equations converge as • The energy flux from non-resonant triads into small in the 2D plane decreases as • The fast-mode energy is transferred toward the 2D plane, consistent with the consequence of “fast-fast-fast” resonant triadic interactions.
