In this paper we study the asymptotic behaviour of power and multipower variations of stochatstic processes. Processes of the type considered serve in particular, to analyse data of velocity increments of a uid in a turbulence regime with spot intermittency sigma. The purpose of the present paper is to determine the probabilistic limit behaviour of the (multi)power variations of Y, as a basis for studying properties of the intermittency process. Notably the processes Y are in general not of the semimartingale kind and the established theory of multipower variation for semimartingales does not suffice for deriving the limit properties. As a key tool for the results a general central limit theorem for triangular Gaussian schemes is formulated and proved. Examples and an application to realised variance ratio are given.
