    • Abstract


      As a part of the MONTBLEX-90 observational programme, Kytoon and Doppler sodar observations were taken at Kharagpur. These data are analysed to study the turbulent characteristics of the atmospheric boundary layer in terms of stability, temperature structure function (CT2) and velocity structure function (Cv2).CT2follows aZ−4/3 law on most of the days, whereas the variation ofCV2is not systematic.CV2andCT2values are found to vary between 10−5−10−1 m4/3s−2 and 10−5−10−2°C2 m−2/3 respectively.
