Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Extended self-symmetry (ESS) was used for investigating the moments of temperature increments with respect to their sign-symmetry properties. For both even- and odd-order structure functions, the sign-symmetric and sign-antisymmetric components were also defined. Data from high-Reynolds-number atmospheric boundary layer was used. It was found that ESS could detect two different scaling ranges only when structure functions with disparate sign-symmetry properties were compared.
