Abstract

Remotely sensed wind, temperature changes with height, and turbulence have been compared with in situ instrumentation using optical and acoustic techniques across and within valleys. These comparisons have provided data useful in the interpretation of spatial averages inherent in remote sensing with spatial and temporal representativity of point meteorological measurements in complexterrain. Of particular interest in this study was comparison of the optical turbulence derived index-of-refraction structure function Cn with the acoustically derived temperature structure function CT over divergent scales across and within a valley.
