Turbulent pressure fluctuations measured during CHATS


Oncley, Steven P.; Massman, William J.; Patton, Edward G. 2008. Turbulent pressure fluctuations measured during CHATS. In: AMS 18th Symposium on Boundary Layers and Turbulence. Paper 18A.3. Boston, MA: American Meteorological Society. Online: https://ams.confex.com/ams/pdfpapers/139888.pdf

Fast-response pressure fluctuations were included in the Canopy Horizontal Array of Turbulence Study (CHATS) at several heights within and just above the canopy in a walnut orchard. Two independent systems were intercompared and then separated. We present an evaluation of turbulence statistics - including the pressure transport term in the turbulence kinetic energy budget equation - within this canopy.

Keywords: turbulence, pressure fluctuations, Canopy Horizontal Array of Turbulence Study (CHATS)
