In order to make recommendations to landowners with regard to the design and management of tree shelterbelts, it is necessary to understand and predict the wind flow patterns associated with shelterbelt structure. A structural description is a prerequisite for any prediction of wind flow. Optical porosity (percentage of open spaces on the side view of a shelterbelt) has been used as a structural descriptor of a shelterbelt; however, it is a 2-dimensional measure unable to fully represent the… CONTINUE READING
