Abstract : Rawinsonde data are the basic data used in an empirical analysis of some of the characteristics of the vertical variability of wind speed in the atmospheric boundary layer. The mean and mean square deviations in wind speed were calculated for vane height (10-15m) and for h equals 0.1, 0.2, and 0.5 km above the ground and h equals 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, and 3.0 km above sea level. Interpolation equations are presented which can be used to make approximate calculations of mean wind-speed profiles and to determine their variability in the boundary layer when the mean wind speed at vane height is in excess of 3-4 m/sec.
