Abstract : A technique is described in detail for measurements of turbulent fluxes and intensities in a thermally stratified boundary layer. It is a modification of a procedure first suggested by Kovasznay and further elaborated by Morkovin for determining turbulence in compressible fluid flows. The results are found to be consistent, but the technique is elaborate and time consuming. (Author)
