Abstract

In this paper, we revisit a well-known formulation of temperature structure parameter ($C_T^2$), originally proposed by Tatarskii. We point out its limitations and propose a revised formulation based on turbulence variance and flux budget equations. Our formulation includes a novel physically-based outer length scale which can be estimated from routine meteorological data.

Subject Areas

Bolgiano scaling; buoyancy-range; inertial-range; optical turbulence; outer length scale
