Mean flow

Fluid flow is often decomposed into mean and deviation from the mean, where the averaging can be done in either space or time, thus the mean flow is the field of means for all individual grid points.

Additional recommended knowledge

In the atmospheric sciences, the mean flow is taken to be the purely zonal flow of the atmosphere which is driven by the temperature contrast between equator and the poles.
