  • Basic tests for checking validity of field data

    The following guidelines are suggested for verifying micrometeorological data gathered in field experiments. It is assumed, for simplicity, that the observations being tested are made over open, relatively flat and uniform terrain, with small roughness elements. It is also assumed that the sensors and the data acquisition and recording hardware are basically sound and that the purpose of the ...

  • Some thoughts on in-situ flux measurement in the atmospheric surface layer

    Due to its complexity, the state of a turbulent atmosphere can only be described using statistical quantities such as means, variances, and covariances. Computation of these statistical quantities, particularly those of higher order, must be done with considerable care. This is particularly true if the statistics are used to depict heat and momentum fluxes. This note contains considerations that ...

  • Another look at sonic thermometry

    Abstract. In this note we reassess the role of sonic thermometry in boundary-layer studies. The sonic temperature signal, when corrected for crosswind velocity contamination, very closely approximates the virtual temperature of air. This variable is needed for many boundary-layer calculations. We describe preliminary tests with a new sonic anemometer-thermometer that performs the velocity ...

  • A simple methodology for surface layer characterization during diabatic extremes

    Increased global environmental awareness has fostered widespread use of remote automated weather station (RAWS) networks to monitor meteorological conditions, and reliance on atmospheric dispersion modeling for decisions concerning pollutant dispersion. Dispersion models require as input a characterization of surface layer (SL) heat and momentum fluxes and turbulence. Characterization of these ...

  • Sonic temperature significance and limitations

    The ATI sonic thermometer measures temperature from transit times t1 and t2 measured along the vertical path of the anemometer's probe. They are the times taken by sound pulses to traverse the 15-cm acoustic path in opposite directions; (these same transit times are used also for computing the vertical wind component). The instrument exploits the strong dependence that exists between the speed ...

  • Experimental study of turbulence and vertical temperature profile in the urban boundary layer

    We observed the turbulence and vertical profile of temperature in and above the roughness sublayer (RS) using a tower, a tethered balloon and a Doppler sodar in Himeji City. A 3–D ultrasonic anemometer–thermometer was sited at a height of 54 m on the tower. The present results showed that in the RS, the ratio of friction velocity to wind speed, u* /u, observed under unstable ...
