Abstract : An approximate theory of wind profiles below 200 meters is developed based on planetary boundary layer wind models by several authors. In the case of neutral stratification, the theory has been adapted for fitting observed profiles and the derivation of parameters. In the case of diabatic stratification the generalized wind profile equation can be transformed into the same form as the KEYPS equation which has been used hitherto in lower layers. A method of determining eddy exchange coefficients is applied to a composite wind distribution and preliminary values are given in tabular form. (Author)
