Abstract

Spatially distributed chaos (turbulence) in the cumulus, stratocumulus, stratiform, cirrus and cirrus mammatus clouds have been studied using results of direct numerical simulations and measurements in the cloudy atmosphere. It is shown that in the considered cases the second order moment of helicity distribution (the Levich-Tsinober invariant) dominates the kinetic energy spectra.
