By combined measurements with two ground-based remote sensing techniques, sodar and radioacoustic sounding system (RASS), the covariance of vertical wind and temperature perturbations can be determined. The estimation of errors indicates that this method is probably so accurate that profiles of the atmospheric turbulent heat flux can be determined. This is supported by experimental results.
