Abstract:

A full-scale planetary boundary layer field experiment was conducted jointly by members of the Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories, the Meteorological Research Unit, Royal Air Force, Cardington, England, and the Air Weather Service in late summer of 1973 in northwestern Minnesota. Direct measurements of vertical transport of momentum and heat, as well as vertical profiles of wind velocity and temperature, were obtained to altitudes of 1220 meters. Measurements were made from sensors mounted on a tower and on the cable of a barrage balloon. The data obtained for all the fully convective periods are presented in this report.
