Abstract

Abstract Measurements of horizontal wind speed frequency distributions made within and above a sorghum and a spring barley crop are reported. Analysis showed that fast gusts of wind occurred within both canopies and that gusts much greater than the local mean value occurred within the canopies with a greater frequency than above the canopies. The shape of the wind speed frequency distributions were similar in both crops and the distributions for barley were shown to be fitted well by extreme value distributions and log normal distributions for wind speed of up to five times the mean value.
