Abstract : An experimental study of atmospheric convection in lowest 100 m under conditions of strong surface heating and light winds is presented. Using an instrumented light aircraft, measurements were made of the fluctuating temperatures and vertical air speeds over a desert dry lake during the daytime. Root-mean-square values of these quantities and the convective heat flux were calculated and related to theoretical and laboratory results. (Author)
