Abstract High-resolution aircraft turbulence measurements, well coordinated with radar Doppler spectral width measurements, have been used to verify radar-estimated energy dissipation rates within thunderstorms anvils. The radar-estimated eddy dissipation rates have been carefully interpolated in time and space to the aircraft position. From the aircraft measurements, turbulence was estimated using a three-component averaged structure function D(r). The sensitivity of this structure function to… Expand
