Estimating sensible heat flux using surface renewal analysis and the flux variance method: A case study over olive trees at Sástago (NE of Spain)
MetadataShow full item record
The eddy covariance technique for measuring surface fluxes is often not affordable outside experimental research institutes. Therefore knowledge of the performance of alternative methods for determining surface fluxes is valuable. The performance of surface renewal (SR) analysis and the flux variance (FV) method for estimating sensible heat flux has been evaluated in an experiment carried out over a heterogeneous canopy (olive orchard, 50% ground cover) at a semiarid climate in a windy area. Measurements were made at a single level close to the canopy top. SR analysis was accurate under both stable and unstable conditions. The FV method also showed a good performance under unstable conditions, but it was uncertain near neutral conditions and was not applicable under stable conditions.

A comparison of new and existing equations for estimating sensible heat flux using surface renewal and similarity concepts Castellví Sentís, Francesc; Snyder, R. L.; Baldocchi, D. D.; Martínez-Cob, Antonio (American Geophysical UnionWiley, 2006)This paper describes two approaches for estimating sensible heat flux, using surface renewal and similarity concepts. One approach depends on a temperature structure function parameter and is valid in the inertial sublayer. ...
