Paper Abstract

Data collected over barren and vegetated ground surfaces were used to obtain estimates of Cn2 for the damp unstable boundary layer. These data consisted of latent and sensible heat fluxes. Results from this study show that moisture effects on Cn2 can be larger than generally reported in the literature. Results presented emphasize the relative contributions of temperature and moisture to Cn2 for visible, infrared, radio, and millimeter wavelengths.
