Large-scale fractal structure in laboratory turbulence, astrophysics, and the ocean

It is demonstrated that large-scale fractal structure in laboratory turbulence, the ocean, and the clustering of galaxies may have a common percolation nature. The fractal dimensionality of all these structures is shown to be approximately 4/3 (much smaller than 3, the dimensionality of spatial motion). The author compares laboratory measurements and natural observations of various scientists.
