Scintillometer: Atmospheric Turbulence Measurement
Scintillometer for atmospheric turbulence measurement. The LAS MkII Scintillometer provides continuous measurements of sensible heat fluxes over path lengths from 100 m up to 4.5 km. The measurement process is very straightforward and yields fast results. Since limited power is required, in most cases a simple solar-charged battery is sufficient.
The scintillometer can be combined with a meteorological sensor kit to calculate wind speed, temperature and pressure sensors and plugs directly into the LAS MkII receiver.
