Estimating the zero-plane displacement and roughness length for tall vegetation and forest canopies using semi-empirical wind profiles


Journal of Applied Meteorology 32(3): 574-579
Estimating the zero-plane displacement and roughness length for tall vegetation and forest canopies using semi-empirical wind profiles
A simple method based on a mass-conservation principle is presented for estimating the aerodynamic characteristics of forest and tall vegetation canopies. The method uses semi-empirical modifications of the profiles in the transition layer, eliminating the need for measured wind data extending into the logarithmic regime.
