Paper Abstract

Over a snow-covered field, I have measured time series of the turbulent fluctuations in temperature and humidity with a fine-wire platinum resistance thermometer and a Lyman-alpha hygrometer. From these time series I computed temperature and humidity spectra and temperature-humidity cospectra. When properly summed, these spectra and cospectra yielded refractive index spectra for visible and millimetre wavelengths, the first such spectra ever collected over snow.
