    Attenuating absorption contribution on Cn2 estimates with a large-aperture scintillometer Pierre Adrien Solignac, Aurore Brut, Jean-Louis Selves, Jean-Pierre B eteille, Jean-Philippe Gastellu-Etchegorry To cite this version: Pierre Adrien Solignac, Aurore Brut, Jean-Louis Selves, Jean-Pierre B eteille, Jean-Philippe Gastellu-Etchegorry. The Large Aperture Scintillometer(LAS) has been developed in the ’s (Wang et al., ). It has been applied to measure a number of atmospheric surface layer quantities, most notably the structure function parameter of the refractive index, Cn2 (Ochs and Wang, ), the wind speed across the scintillometer.

    Abstract: Evapotranspiration (ET) is one of the key variables in the water and energy exchange between land surface and atmosphere. This paper develops an end-member-based two-source approach for estimating land surface ET (i.e., the ESVEP model) from remote sensing data, considering the differing responses of soil water content at the upper surface layer to soil Cited by:   However they differ in the approach to calculate H. Since ET is determined as a residual in the EB equation, the accurate estimation of H becomes critical. The objective of the study was to assess the RS estimates of H with H measured using a Large Aperture Scintillometer (LAS). Further comparison was done for ET.

    Physical principles and design criteria for a large-aperture scintillometer conceived at the NOAA Wave Propagation Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado are presented. This instrument measures intensity fluctuations of a collimated beam of incoherent light at spatial wavelengths within the inertial subrange. Together with measurements of mean windspeed and rule-of-thumb . The Large Aperture Scintillometer (LAS) workshop, held November th, , is a comprehensive 2-day workshop, in which the LAS MkII is examined and the data from a field comparison to Eddy Covariance instrumentation is reviewed. The workshop will also include a hands on component with the related equipment.

COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle.

Through the use of large aperture scintillometers, one can reliably measure the daily sensi- ble heat ux, which in turn can be used to derive evapotranspiration. Currently, New Mexico Tech has nine rst generation Kipp & Zonen scin- tillometers, as well as one second generation Kipp & Zonen Size: 4MB.

Eddy covariance (EC) and large aperture scintillometer (LAS) measurements were collected over an irrigated olive orchard near Marrakech, Morocco. The tall, sparse vegetation in the experimental site was relatively homogeneous, but during irrigation events spatial variability in soil humidity was by: For a 15 cm aperture scintillometer mounted 40 m above the surface, and a path length of m A second-generation large-aperature scintillometer book sets in at a heat flux of less than Wm This puts a limitation on the maximum useful distance of a scintillometer.

There are several ways to extend the range of a scintillometer. One solution is the use of larger apertures. The Scintec BLS Large Aperture Scintillometer measures atmospheric turbulence and heat flux over path lengths between m and m. As part of a meteorological station it can also be used to determine the evapotranspiration over extended areas.

A scintillometer senses turbulence between an optical transmitter and a Size: KB. An incoherent scintillometer with m aperture was testedalong a km path over grassland.

Scintillometer derived heat fluxes were comparedwith in situ eddy covariance measurements. Albeit with considerable scatter, the fluxescompared well during daytime. During nighttime credible fluxes are also obtained.

The LAS MkII Large Aperture Scintillometer provides continuous measurements over path lengths from m up to km. It is the only scintillometer currently available with a built-in display and control-pad. It has internal digital processing to make calculations in-situ and to store data and results.

It consists of an optical or radio wave transmitter and a receiver at opposite ends of an atmospheric propagation path.

The receiver detects and evaluates the intensity fluctuations of the transmitted signal, called. The Scintec BLS Large Aperture Scintillometer measures atmospheric turbulence and heat flux over path lengths between m (with Path Reduction Aperture, otherwise m) and m.

The large aperture scintillometer (LAS), which uses an incoherent beam in the near infrared region (Ochs and Wilson, ) is becoming popular in hydrometeorological studies (De Bruin et al., ; McAneney et al., ; Lagouarde et al., ; Chehbouni et al., ) because it is a relatively cheap, robust instrument which can be used to Cited by: The accuracy in determining sensible heat flux (H) of three Kipp and Zonen large aperture scintillometers (LAS) was evaluated with reference to an eddy covariance (EC) system over relatively flat and uniform grassland near Timpas (CO, USA).

System components and setup and maintenance are more demanding for the radio wave scintillometer; therefore, this type of instrument has been used in only a few studies [Meijninger et al., ].

The challenge in using a large‐aperture scintillometer for determining latent heat fluxes is defining available energy, an issue central to this by: Accurate estimation of evaporation (E0) over open water bodies in arid regions (e.g., lakes in the desert) is of great importance for local water resource management.

Due to the ability to accurately determine sensible (H) and latent (LE) heat fluxes over scales of hundreds to thousands of meters, scintillometers are more and more appreciated.
