Abstract : Similarity principles of the flow in the surface layer of the atmosphere under neutral conditions are utilized herein to simplify the prediction of the wind profile below 200 meters in the planetary boundary layer. A method describing how the wind distribution in the diabatic boundary layer can in principle be determined is presented. A method describing how eddy exchange coefficients can be obtained from composite wind profiles is developed and results are given in tabular form. (Author)
