  • Abstract For many applications it is assumed that the turbulent fluctuations of the wind components are normally distributed. The validity of this assumption was examined for the first 90 m of the atmosphere by observing the skewness of the wind component distribution as related to atmospheric stability and height above the ground. Results of this study show that the skewness of the longitudinal and vertical components of the wind are indeed functions of atmospheric stability and height above… CONTINUE READING
