    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Laser measurements done with an airborne profiler were applied to determine geometric parameters of the land surface and to estimate the aerodynamic roughness length at increasing length scales. Geostatistical methods were used to obtain a measure of length scales. Long laser profiles (8 km at a spatial sampling of 0.15 m) were used to calculate the autocorrelation function, the power spectrum, fractal dimensions, and the wavelets transform.
