Geophysical flows comprise a broad range of spatial and temporal scales, from planetary- to meso-scale and microscopic turbulence regimes. The relation of scales and flow phenomena is essential in order to validate and improve current numerical weather and climate prediction models. While regime separation is often possible on a formal level via multi-scale analysis, the systematic exploration, structure preservation, and mathematical details remain challenging. This chapter provides an entry to the literature and reviews fundamental notions as background for the later chapters in this collection and as a departure point for original research in the field.
