Abstract : Measurements of high frequency temperature and velocity fluctuations were made in the atmospheric boundary layer. These data were analyzed using analog correlating techniques to obtain the structure function rather than spectral methods to obtain the spectral densities. The autocorrelation function of temperature fluctuations at 4 meters and 2 meters was computed as was the autocorrelation function of downstream velocity fluctuations at 4 meters. The cross-correlation function of temperature and downstream velocity fluctuations at 4 meters was also examined. (Author)
