In science:

Churazov et al. (2001) suggested that the buoyantly rising bubbles dissipate energy into sound waves, internal waves, turbulent motion in the wake, and potential energy of the uplifted gas, all of which could provide heating to the cooling core region (see also e.g.
Feedback under the microscope II: heating, gas uplift, and mixing in the nearest cluster core
This would mean, as pointed out by Molendi (2002), that the cool blobs/filaments can hardly originate from the adiabatic evolution of the hot-phase gas entrained by buoyant radio bubbles, as suggested by Churazov et al. (2001).
Feedback under the microscope II: heating, gas uplift, and mixing in the nearest cluster core
However, if the radio halo consists of two bubbles rising buoyantly in the hot ICM, then the outer radio lobes are likely to be older.
Feedback under the microscope II: heating, gas uplift, and mixing in the nearest cluster core
The optical emission line filaments in M 87 are likely due to cooled gas, enriched by dust from stellar mass loss (Sparks et al. 1993), which has been uplifted by the buoyant relativistic plasma, together with the coolest X-ray emitting phase.
Feedback under the microscope II: heating, gas uplift, and mixing in the nearest cluster core
Injection of non-thermal relativistic protons in rising buoyant AGN bubbles has also been explored as an alternative feedback mechanism (Sijacki et al. 2008).
Jet-regulated cooling catastrophe
In other words, the requirement of substantial buoyant force on the jet material in the galaxy’s atmosphere implies that the jet is either highly underdense or highly subrelativistic.
The Nuclear Outflow in NGC 2110
The tubes act nearly identically as they rise buoyantly in the convection zone and also in the lower atmosphere, as the magnetic buoyancy instability develops and the outer fieldlines extend into the corona.

This model is fully 3D, is based upon a unique formulation of the equations of motion for buoyant flow (Rehm and Baum, 1978) and is intended for use in predicting the behaviour of fires burning through peri-urban/wildlands (what the authors call ‘Community-scale fire spread’ (Rehm et al., 2003; Evans et al., 2003)).
