Paper Abstract

The results of investigations carried out during several months in different seasons are presented. Measurements were performed with an acoustic (ultrasonic) meteorological complex. In addition to the standard meteorological parameters, we measured such turbulence parameters, as the turbulent kinetic energy, momentum and heat fluxes, wind and temperature scales including the Monin-Obukhov length, etc., and also their statistical characteristics. Classes of atmospheric stability were determined in the course of measurements. The results obtained are compared with the data of conventional measurements at the meteorological station. The behavior of the measured parameters is studied depending on the general atmospheric state.
