comment What are “schlieren” in English?
@BobbiBennett, tpg2114, SpehroPefhany I understand that the meaning of the English word "schlieren" is limited to what Wikipedia explains. I am looking for a word for the general pattern, irrespective of the medium and cause. Which is why I gave a wide range of visual examples.

@Moogle Just noted that you proposed "swirls" in your comment before Andrew Leach posted the answer I accepted. Sorry for overlooking that.

Since the pattern I'm describing is in fact moving, this is a perfect fit. Thank you!

But if there is no word, English speakers can still describe such a pattern. It is such a common everyday occurrence, that there must be a way to refer to it. Just think: How would you talk about the pattern of oil on water? Or of the pattern that you aim for when you marble paper?
