Turbulence by Abby Kleinheksel

This photograph is intended to capture the concept of visualizing turbulent flow. In the image, a stream of dye is injected into a fluid flow above a small-scale model of an artificial reef. The movement of the dye is used to analyze the way the fluid interacts with the reef model. This photograph shows the intricate details of fluid motion during turbulent flow.
