Decaying and periodically kicked turbulence are analyzed within the Gledzer–Ohkitani–Yamada shell model, to allow for sufficiently large scaling regimes. Energy is transferred towards the small scales in intermittent bursts. Nevertheless, mean field arguments are sufficient to account for the ensemble averaged energy decay E(t) ~t^2 or the parameter dependencies for the ensemble averaged total energy in the kicked case. Within numerical precision, the inertial subrange intermittency remains the same, whether the system is forced or decaying. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
