Abstract : KEYPS model and Monin-Obukhov's log-linear model were examined pertaining to their adequacy of describing wind and temperature profiles in thermally stratified shear flows for diversified thermal stability. The dimensionless wind shear and lapse rate for all ranges of thermal stability studied, -2.0 = or < Ri = or < 0.4, were shown to be linearly dependent on the dimensionless height derived from the log-linear model. Deacon numbers behaved quite differently from what were predicted by KEYPS model. (Author)
