Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains data collected during studies of boundary layer winds and
surface characteristics. These field experiments were designed to:
1. Understand and quantify the partitioning of wind shear stress between
surface and roughness elements on (a) rocky surfaces and (b) surfaces with
scatted rocks and intervening sand surface.
2. Test the Raupach ... View entire text
