The scalar roughness length for temperature, z0h, is necessary to estimate the sensible flux from atmospheric surface layer similarity theory in conjunction with skin temperature measurements. A theoretical relationship for z0h as a function of the roughness Reynolds number z01 which was developed by Brutsaert [1975] for rough-bluff surfaces is often used to link infrared skin temperature measurements to atmospheric temperature measurements. Measurements of sensible heat flux and temperature atâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
