Turbulence at 4.5, 10 and 22 m measured downstream of the Reeves glacier during katabatic wind events in 1994/95.
Entry ID: Turb_struct_in_pert_ABL_94-95

Abstract: Turbulence measurements have been performed downstream a steeply sloping
glacier (Reeves) on the Nansen Ice Sheet, a coastal area close to Terra Nova
Bay Italian station in Antarctica. Measurements have been performed at 4.5, 10
and 22 m above ground level, that is about 100 m above mean sea level. The
measuring site is frequently beaten by katabatic winds flowing from the
Antarctic Plateau toward ... View entire text
