Abstract If vertical turbulent fluxes are computed from time series collected at a fixed point, it is assumed that the temporal mean vertical velocity is zero. This paper discusses the validity of this assumption by analysis of time series of the vertical wind velocity collected with sonic anemometers at four different heights ranging from 3 to 180 m from the Cabauw tower. It is shown that even for averaging times of 1 hour, the mean vertical velocity can have values of the order of 10 cm/s.
