A technique is developed for modeling the influence of urban geometry on the relation between Surface Layer and urban canopy energy balance. The proposed approach makes use of a scale-modeled urban roughness array, which is constructed in open-air conditions to enable the measurement of fluxes with natural turbulence effects. This paper describes use of the model for determining Surface Layer fluxes, and the relative magnitude of scale-dependent turbulent fluxes is compared with full-scale findings obtained by conventional methods.
