Abstract

The representativity problem of laser Doppler anemometer wind measurements in the boundary layer under different atmospheric conditions has been investigated theoretically and experimentally. The calculations of the mean wind-velocity measurement errors for the surface layer under different types of thermal stratification and for the boundary layer under neutral conditions have been carried out. The theoretical conclusions are confirmed by the experimental results.
