There is a striking convergence between Burgers turbulence and the continuous spontaneous localization (CSL) model of quantum mechanics. In this paper we exploit this analogy, identify the CSL counterparts of quantities in turbulence, such as the Reynolds number and the injected energy, show that the velocity of a particle subjected to the localization process satisfies Burgers equation and indicate a time region for experimental tests of the CSL models.
