Paper Abstract

Several sets of experimental micrometeorological data were used to obtain estimates of vertical profiles of C2n for damp unstable conditions. These data consisted of two types: (1) latent and sensible heat fluxes and (2) vertical profiles of wind, temperature, and specific humidity. Estimates of the scaling lengths of virtual potential temperature and specific humidity obtained from these data were used to calculate their vertical gradients and, in turn, to estimate C2n in accordance with Tatarski. Results from these data sets are presented to emphasize the relative contributions of temperature and moisture to C2n.
