Abstract

We obtained simultaneous measurements of the structure parameters CT2, CTQ, and CQ2 from the KNMI meteorological tower at Cabauw and investigated the behavior of these structure parameters in the mixed layer. In the lower part of the mixed layer, the structure parameters were found to follow the free-convection prediction (z/zi)−4/3. In the upper part of the mixed layer a frequency-dependent phase shift between temperature and humidity fluctuations was found.
