Abstract

The purpose of this investigation is to provide direct measurements of wind force components over surfaces of various roughnesses in the field in order to assess the protective role of sparse vegetation and to evaluate the shear stress partitioning model of Raupach et al. (1993) over a range of wind speeds. As well, this study will provide a data set for comparison with other field and wind tunnel studies
