Paper Abstract

We study tropospheric aerothermal probe data by using the orthogonal Haar wavelet averages of the dissipation to segment the data. Segmenting the data in this way allows us to isolate regions of distinct mean dissipation. We then use the Haar wavelet transform to derive spectra and structure functions for the segmented regions, thereby recovering Kolmogorov statistics. We also comment on wavelet derived structure functions and point out data anomalies only visible in the wavelet domain.
