Paper Abstract

We propose a novel framework for the estimation of C2n in the atmosphere by utilizing an inherent vertical scaling characteristics of the temperature fields. Observations from a field campaign over the Hawaii island are used for rigorous validation. Furthermore, the strength of the proposed approach is demonstrated by direct comparison against an alternative approach based on the so-called Thorpe scale.
