The dynamics of uniformly rotating fluids are described using 3D Euler and Navier-Stokes equations. Periodic boundary conditions are imposed and the ratio of domain periods is assumed to be generic. The 3D rotating turbulence is shown to decouple into phase turbulence and 2D turbulence for vertically averaged fields if the anisotropic Rossby number is small.
