comment Can we 'see' the Kolmogorv microscale
flow is no numbers game, it's a mechanical thing with mechanical effects. Obviously we both don't know, but I don't think your analogy holds.

But I would not need to isolate a particular eddy - I'd just need to be sure that there's no eddy smaller than x. Would this not be possible by looking at the shearing of droplets, diffusive mixing or co-moving suspended particles?

I'm not 100% sure what you tried to test, I appreciate the effort in answering my question and I'll think about your answer some more

I've only skimmed the paper to see the figures you mentioned. They show a vorticity contour plot, isn't the vorticity 'simply' the rotation at a given location? Does this tell us anything about the size of the eddy?

tangential question: Suppose you use a vacuum and a hydralisk model (there exists such a thing, right?), how would the scaling work?

comment How to estimate the Kolmogorov length scale
1) I changed the syntax so the numbers are more readable, please check if still correct, 2) as @BrandonEnright said, this does not answer the question as to how to arrive there.

Ping! Did you get around to do your tests? I'd greatly appreciate if you can expand your answer
