Big Whorls Have Little Whorls Big whorls have little whorls That feed on their velocity, And little whorls have lesser whorls And so on to viscosity. This poem summarises Richardson’s 1920 paper ‘The supply of energy from and to Atmospheric Eddies’

Big whorls have little whorls
That feed on their velocity,
And little whorls have lesser whorls
And so on to viscosity.
