Abstract : Humidity fluctuations over land were measured by a Ly-alpha humidiometer and dew point hygrometer; the results showed excellent agreement. From simultaneous measurements of vertical velocity, temperature, and downwind velocity, the univeral shape of the spectra and cospectra for humidity transport were examined, and compared with those for heat and momentum.
