Introduction : This calculator calculates the Monin-Obukhov length (L), defined as that height at which turbulence is generated more by buoyancy than by wind shear. In the daytime over land, L is typically between 1 to 50 meters. In this calculator, you have three input values:
This calculator also determines the windspeed profile (M) at a given elevation in the stable surface layer. Inputs for this calculation are:
