Aerodynamic and microclimatic effects of windbreaks and of regional windbreak networks

Aerodynamic and microclimatic effects of windbreaks and of regional windbreak networks

Meteorology and agroforestry Proceedings of an international workshop on the application of meteorology to agroforestry systems planning and management, Nairobi 9-13 February 1987: 485-520

A review, analysing the effects of windbreaks in the context of current theoretical and experimental knowledge, and considering their influence at two different scales, viz. the local shelter zone of each hedge/shelterbelt, and the regional effects of networks of hedges/shelterbelts.
