Abstract : For many scientific and engineering applications it is desirable to have estimates of wind and temperature profiles and associated flow parameters. Based upon the premise that similarity theory represents mean flow conditions in the surface boundary layer, a procedure is outlined whereby paired wind and temperature measurements together with the conjugate laws of the profiles can be used for determining actual gradients and turbulent characteristics.
