A new geometric view of homogeneous isotropic turbulence is contemplated employing the two-point velocity correlation tensor of the velocity fluctuations. We show that this correlation tensor generates a family of pseudo-Riemannian metrics. This enables us to specify the geometry of a singled out Eulerian fluid volume in a statistical sense. We expose the relationship of some geometric constructions with statistical quantities arising in turbulence.
