Abstract

In this paper we show that the role of kinematic relationships (coupling?) in the issue of nonlocality goes far beyond their use in the nonlocal interpretation of the Kolmogorov 4/5 law and applicable also to general stochastic processes, unrelated to the N-S equation. We put special emphasis on this aspect bringing 1) an extensive list of such relations for the structure functions expressed via terms all of which have the form of correlations between large-and small-scale quantities, and 2) examples of their experimental verification at large Reynolds numbers in field and airborne experiments.
