The “Leipzig Wind Profile” is a unique example of a representative wind distribution in the frictional layer which resulted from MILDNER’S set of 28 pilot-balloon observations with two theodolites on October 20, 1931, near Leipzig for a stable weather situation. It is shown, that the vectors of geostrophic motion and ground drag follow from the wind profile when a scalar austausch is assumed. The re-computed vertical austausch-distribution indicates that the energy for maintaining the… CONTINUE READING
