Long-term measurements of Cn2 in the boundary layer


  • R. B. Chadwick,

  • K. P. Moran


The results of a year-long Cn2 measurement program to determine the feasibility for radar detection of hazardous wind shear are discussed. Monthly and hourly statistics of Cn2 are presented, and diurnal and annual cycles are identified. It is shown that Cn2 can be modeled as a one-parameter log normal random variable.
