It is commonly observed that the large scales in freely-decaying, rapidly-rotating turbulence are dominated by columnar vortices aligned with the rotation axis. We show that these columnar vortices are an inevitable consequence of angular momentum conservation and that they form by linear inertial-wave propagation.
