(Received 13 January 2009; published 9 July 2009)
Weakly rotating turbulent Rayleigh-BeŽnard convection was studied experimentally and numerically.
With increasing rotation and large enough Rayleigh number a supercritical bifurcation from a turbulent
state with nearly rotation-independent heat transport to another with enhanced heat transfer is observed at
