New paper published:

Our work on the vertical structure of canopy turbulence is published in Environmental Fluid Mechanics. This was a collaboration with Duke, MIT and Western Australia and uses my velocity-intermittency method to identify new features of the structure. The results are consistent between flume experiments of water flowing through and over artificial vegetation, and air flow at the Duke Forest Experiment.  Heidi wrote an Annual Reviews on this topic in 2012, and this figure shows the typical values for the mean velocity, velocity covariance and velocity standard deviation from Heidi and Marco's previous work, along with our results for the velocity-intermittency quadrants (quadrant 1 results were invariant with height):
