# Moments and lower bounds in the far-field of solutions to quasi-geostrophic flows

• We consider the long time behavior of moments of solutions and of the solutions itself to dissipative Quasi-Geostrophic flow (QG) with sub-critical powers. The flow under consideration is described by the nonlinear scalar equation

$\frac{\partial \theta}{\partial t} + u\cdot \nabla \theta + \kappa (-\Delta)^{\alpha}\theta =f$, $\theta|_{t=0}=\theta_0$

Rates of decay are obtained for moments of the solutions, and lower bounds of decay rates of the solutions are established.
