Abstract or Summary
  • An eigenvector analysis of the velocity-temperature correlation matrix is applied to clear-air turbulence measured by aircraft in the Bora. The eigenvectors are identified with the main eddies of the turbulence. This study attempts to infer the three-dimensional structure of these eddies. The results are compared with turbulent structures in the stable boundary layer. The turbulence in the strongly stratified boundary layer appears to be dominated by double roller eddies with their axes of rotation tilted in the shear direction. The clear-air turbulence shows a larger variety of motion types.
