Jupiter is a gaseous planet – the largest planet in our Solar System – with more than 11 times the Earth's diameter. But both Jupiter and Earth are governed by the same physical laws. And therefore, the vortex vortex in the Earth's ocean resembles a turbulent vortex in Jupiter's dense atmosphere. The similarities are evident in these paintings that show vortices in Jupiter's atmosphere and the Earth's Baltic Sea. Norman Kuring, from NASA's Space Flight Center, said:

All this relates to fluids moving along the rotating body.

Kuring describes flow patterns as a combination of laminar (following a smooth path) and turbulent (uneven and chaotic). Flows can be characterized by numbers named for known physicists, such as Reynolds, Rosby, and Riley. But you do not need textbook knowledge of the fluid dynamics to understand its consequences. Kuring said:

Of all the complexities of beauty, whether it's about Earth, Jupiter, or your cup of coffee when you pour the cream.

Scientists believe that Jupiter has three different layers of clouds. The image above, shot by Juno, shows clouds rich in ammonia that spin in the final layer of the planet.

According to Alberto Adriani, co-investigator of the Juno mission from the Institute of Space Astrophysics and Planetology, the whirlwinds in Jupiter's clouds reflect disturbances in the atmosphere caused by the rapid rotation of the planet and higher temperatures deeper in the atmosphere. It compares this phenomenon with rapid fluid rotation while the key is.

Samples in the Jupiter atmosphere are similar to those in the Earth's oceans. The satellite image in natural color shows the green flowering phytoplankton that follows the edges of the vortex in the Baltic Sea. In this medium – Earth's ocean – turbulent processes are important for the movement of heat, carbon and nutrients around the planet. Models that accurately represent these processes are critical to understanding weather in the air and sea.

While scientists continue to explore the complexity of earth's oceans, astronomers learn more about Jupiter's complex composition – important for understanding how our solar system and other solar systems are formed. Kuring said:

In interpreting what we see elsewhere in the Solar System and Space, we always compare ourselves with the phenomena that we already know on Earth. We work from the famous to the unknown.

Conclusion: Images comprise vortex vortices on Jupiter and Earth.
