Résumé: The solutions of Burgers equation with white noise initial velocity are closely connected to the convex hull $\h_a$ of a Brownian excursion with parabolic drift $s\mapsto e_s+{a\over 2}\,s^2$. We derive from the law of the minimum $\sigma$ and the location $\eta$ of the minimum of $s \mapsto 2 e_s/s(1-s)$ a complete description of the convex hull $\h_a$. As an application, we determine the statistical properties of the Burgers turbulence on the circle.
