Abstract


In this study, turbulence data taken in different vertical levels in the Amazon rain forest are analyzed for two distinct nights: a night characterized by intense turbulent mixing, and a night which turbulence was intermittent. This is done using the multiresolution decomposition, which allows the identification of the turbulence and submeso contributions to spectra and cospectra.


Keywords
