Extended self-similarity of atmospheric boundary layer wind fields in mesoscale regime: Is it real?
In this letter, we study the scaling properties of multi-year observed and atmospheric model-generated wind time series. We have found that the extended self-similarity holds for the observed series, and remarkably, the scaling exponents corresponding to the meoscale range closely match the well-accepted inertial-range turbulence values... However, the scaling results from the simulated time series are significantly different. read morePDF Abstract
