Abstract. Multiresolution methods like the wavelet packets or the cosine packets are more and more used in physical applications and in particular in twodimensional turbulence. The theoretical bases of these decompositions have been introduced in the first part of this paper. The numerical results have shown that the wavelet packets decomposition is well suited for studying this kind of problem: the visualization of the vorticity field is better, without any kind of artifacts contrary to the visualization with the cosine packets filtering. The current second part of the paper is devoted to the physical interpretation of the filtering process proposed in the first part. Only the wavelet packets decomposition is considered here since the cosine packets did not give an entire satisfaction. 1. Introduction. We have shown in the first part of this paper [6] that the wavelet packets filtering can be successfully used for analyzing twodimensional turbulence. This technique allows to separate two kinds of structures, the solid rotations composed by the core of the vortices from the background mainly composed by vorticity

Twodimensional turbulence appears to be a more formidable problem than threedimensional turbulence despite the numerical advantage of working with one less dimension. In the present paper we review recent numerical investigations of the phenomenology of twodimensional turbulence as well as recent theoretical breakthroughs by various leading researchers. We also review efforts to reconcile the observed energy spectrum of the atmosphere (the spectrum) with the predictions of twodimensional turbulence and quasigeostrophic turbulence.

In this paper, we revisit the claim that the Eulerian and quasiLagrangian same time correlation tensors are equal. This statement allows us to transform the results of an MSR quasiLagrangian statistical theory of hydrodynamic turbulence back to the Eulerian representation. We define a hierarchy of homogeneity symmetries between the local homogeneity of Frisch and global homogeneity. It is shown that both the elimination of the sweeping interactions and the derivation of the 4/5law require a homogeneity assumption stronger than local homogeneity but weaker than global homogeneity. The quasiLagrangian transformation, on the other hand, requires an even stronger homogeneity assumption which is manytime rather than onetime but still weaker than manytime global homogeneity. We argue that it is possible to relax this stronger assumption and still preserve the conclusions derived from theoretical work based on the quasiLagrangian transformation.

In systems governing twodimensional turbulence, surface quasigeostrophic turbulence, (more generally αturbulence), twolayer quasigeostrophic turbulence, etc., there often exist two conservative quadratic quantities, one “energy”like and one “enstrophy”like. In a finite inertial range there are in general two spectral fluxes, one associated with each conserved quantity. The energy spectrum in general has a contribution from each of the fluxes, and our previous work showed that these two contributions to the energy spectrum can be linearly superimposed despite the highly nonlinear nature of the problem. Often, one of the fluxes is dominant and the energy spectrum then has the visual shape of the case with a single flux; the contribution from the subdominant flux is effectively hidden. The relative magnitudes of the spectral fluxes depend on the dissipative sinks in the system, and varies according to the physical/mathematical system under consideration. We derive an important inequality involving the “energy ” and enstrophy ” fluxes for each representative system. This result then allows us to determine the effective energy spectral shape in the general case of double cascades. 1.
