An exponential relationship between the vertical wind shear and the layer thickness over which this shear is measured has been derived. From an analysis of the Richardson number it appears that shallow layers reaching maximum shearing conditions under the established power law should be turbulent, irrespective of the prevailing thermal stability conditions.
