Abstract : The 'ramp' is an often observed feature in temperature fluctuations during unstable atmospheric conditions. It is characterized by a gradual increase in temperature followed by a sudden drop to an ambient level. This ramp clearly distinguishes temperature signals from other turbulence signals such as velocity. Three different ramp-type atmospheric temperature fluctuations and their derivatives are constructed and statistically examined for the parameters skewness and coefficient of excess. These statistical values are compared with values obtained from actual signals. (Author)
