The determination of the Kolmogoroff constants for velocity, temperature and humidity fluctuations from second- and third-order structure functions

  • J. E. Paquin (a1) and S. Pond (a1)

Second- and third-order structure functions were computed from velocity, temperature and humidity fluctuations in the wind over the ocean. Universal inertial-convective subrange constants (Kolmogoroff constants) were computed from these structure functions. The constant for velocity is consistent with other recent observations. The temperature and humidity constants are found to be equal within the measurement error and have values of about 0·8.
