This paper provides a short introduction to the consequences of intermittency on the statistical properties of fully developed turbulence, mainly on (a) scaling laws for the different moments of velocity, (b) energy distribution and (c) diffusion behaviour. The description of intermittency is carried out in the fractal β model and in a more general multifractal perspective.
