Langmuir-like Repetitive Flows [ID: 825]
The repetitive flow formations within the atmosphere visually remind me of two things: (1) Langmuir circulations of physical oceanography (counter-rotating vortices at the ocean's surface, aligned with the wind), and (2) the art form of marbling (i.e. floating paints on a medium and using various tools to create, as one example, peacock-feather-like designs). Although created by different means, in both cases velocity, friction, and diffusion play crucial roles in the formation of resulting visible flows. I think looking at many different repeated patterns (and their exact compositions) within Jupiter's atmosphere will give us a much greater understanding of its highly complex flows.
