Abstract

An incoherent scintillometer with 0.31-m aperture was tested along a 9.8-km path over grassland. Scintillometer derived heat fluxes were compared with in situ eddy covariance measurements. Albeit with considerable scatter, the fluxes compared well during daytime. During nighttime credible fluxes are also obtained. The scintillometer functioned satisfactory for 96␘f the 7-week period
