Deviations from this mean vary considerably. The time involved in rapid deviations may well be less than 1 s, that of slow deviations 15 min or more. Therefore, measurements of these turbulent motions is difficult; so is the determination of the mean wind velocity and direction. Wind velocity is not directly related to the pressure gradient bringing about the flow of air, because the roughness of the earth's surface interferes by causing friction. Consequently, wind velocity increases with height.

Sonntag) Source: see Fig. 2/3. 1, Minimum night temperature). A most fruitful application is that of night frost prevention. The various methods in use are based on different principles: • • In citrus orchards, the radiation balance is influenced by heating with special radiators. This method is more advantageous than heating the air by fires. The latter method whereby the air in the lower metres is heated directly, is based on the mixing Λ air of lower and higher layers. The method requires much energy and the results are not very reliable.
