Paper Abstract

High-altitude profiles of the parameters of atmospheric air currents in the lower surface layer were measured with the use of a meteorological mast of 32 m in height. A mobile ultrasonic meteosystem was used for the measurements. The theory of similarity for turbulence in anisotropic boundary layer has been verified. The measured vertical profiles of main turbulence parameters have an oscillating character. High-altitude profiles of vertical outer scale are given, reconstructed from measurements by two independent techniques. An equation for the outer turbulence scale is given, determined by the departure from the 2/3-law in the structure temperature function. This scale depends on temperature dispersion and structural characteristic of temperature fluctuations. A satisfactory agreement between values of such outer scale and those of the Tatarskii outer scale is observed.
