When a fluid system is subject to strong rotation, centrifugal fluid motion is expected, i.e., denser (lighter) fluid moves outward (inward) from (toward) the axis of rotation. Here we demonstrate, both experimentally and numerically, the existence of an unexpected outward motion of warm and lighter vortices in rotating thermal convection. This ano...

We present high-precision experimental and numerical studies of the Nusselt number Nu as functions of the Rayleigh number Ra in geostrophic rotating convection with the domain aspect ratio Γ varying from 0.4 to 3.8 and the Ekman number Ek varying from 2.7×10−5 to 2.0×10−7. With decreasing Ra our heat-transport data Nu(Ra) reveal a gradual transitio...

When a fluid system is subject to strong rotation, centrifugal fluid motion is expected, i.e., denser (lighter) fluid moves outward (inward) from (toward) the axis of rotation. Here we demonstrate, both experimentally and numerically, the existence of an unexpected outward motion of warm and lighter vortices in rotating turbulent convection. This a...

Brownian motion of particles in fluid is the most common form of collective behavior in physical and biological systems. Here, we demonstrate through both experiment and numerical simulation that the movement of vortices in a rotating turbulent convective flow resembles that of inertial Brownian particles, i.e., they initially move ballistically an...

We present high-precision experimental and numerical studies of the Nusselt number $Nu$ as functions of the Rayleigh number $Ra$ in geostrophic rotating convection with domain aspect ratio ${\Gamma}$ varying from 0.4 to 3.8 and the Ekman number Ek from $2.0{\times}10^{-7}$ to $2.7{\times}10^{-5}$. The heat-transport data $Nu(Ra)$ reveal a gradual t...

We present spatially resolved measurements of the columnar vortex structures in rotating Rayleigh-Benard convection. The scaled radial profiles of the azimuthal velocity uϕ(r) and vertical vorticity ω(r) of the vortices are analyzed and compared with the predictions of the asymptotic theory. The results reveal that the asymptotic theory predicts ac...

We present spatial-resolved measurements of the columnar vortex structures in rotating Rayleigh-B\'enard convection. The scaled radial profiles of the azimuthal velocity $u_{\phi}(r)$ and vertical vorticity ${\omega}(r)$ of the vortices are analyzed and compared with the predictions of the asymptotic theory. The results reveal that the asymptotic t...

In rotating Rayleigh-B\'enard convection, columnar vortices advect horizontally in a stochastic manner. When the centrifugal buoyancy is present the vortices exhibit radial motions that can be explained through a Langevin-type stochastic model. In a centrifugation-dominant flow regime anomalous outward motion of cyclones is observed which is contra...

Vortices play an unique role in heat and momentum transports in astro- and geo-physics, and it is also the origin of the Earth's dynamo. A question existing for a long time is whether the movement of vortices can be predicted or understood based on their historical data. Here we use both the experiments and numerical simulations to demonstrate some...
