Abstract : The unusually complete low-level meteorological data at South Dartmouth, Mass. have been analyzed. The results confirm isotropy at high frequencies, show that spectra and cospectra can be estimated by numerical similarity-type expressions, and that the nondimensional wind shear in accelerating air is significantly less than that in air in equilibrium. Estimation procedures for fluctuation statistics are developed. (Author)
