..., and their role on the possible destabilization of domain-sized vortices. The overview of the laboratory experiments on quasi-two-dimensional turbulence is restricted to include only those carried out in thin electromagnetically forced shallow fluid layers and in stratified fluids. The effects of the quasi-two...

... in inhomogeneous and∕or unsteady media, either at rest or in potential or vortical flows. The cases considered include: (i) linear waves, i.e., with small gradients, which imply small amplitudes, and (ii) nonlinear waves, i.e., with steep gradients, which include “ripples” (large gradients with small amplitude...

In the second part of the paper, methods for the eduction of the coherent structures of turbulence from the background flow and results obtained in the framework of each method are presented. The techniques involving...
