Abstract: 

We consider motion of inertial particles in random (turbulent) flow. Inertia of particles causes delay:
the particle's velocity is not the local flow but the flow at the trajectory some time ago. We demonstrate that this causes particles' clustering on fractal set. This has uses in rain prediction problem and industry.
