Abstract:

A small, three-dimensional pressure-probe anemometer IMFL anemoclinometer was used to measure the three components of the wind vector, shear stress, and the ratio of the standard deviation of the vertical wind to the friction velocity as influenced by atmospheric stability. Horizontal wind and shear stress have been compared with independent wind profile and shear stress meter measurements. The anemometer was coupled with a fast thermometer for eddy correlation measurements of sensible heat flux and with a fast hygrometer for measurements of latent heat flux. The eddy correlation measurements of sensible and latent heat fluxes were compared with independent energy balance, wind profile, and sonic anemometer-thermometer measurements.
