Large-scale turbulence in fluid layers and other quasi-two-dimensional compressible systems consists of planar vortices and waves. Separately, wave turbulence usually produces a direct energy cascade, while solenoidal planar turbulence transports energy to large scales by an inverse cascade.

Lumley used scaling arguments à la Kolmogorov to predict the form of the turbulence energy spectrum under various conditions (Lumley a), including the effects of uniform strain, where he showed that the covariance spectrum follows a k −7/3 law (where k is the wave number), thus decreasing more rapidly than the energy spectrum (k −5/3).
