Wind velocity is not directly related to the pressure gradient bringing about the flow of air, because the roughness of the earth's surface interferes by causing friction. Consequently, wind velocity increases with height. In other words, there exists a wind profile. 2 The wind profile Wind velocity is influenced by the roughness of the earth's surface. This surface is characterized by a Fig. 2/11. Empirical power laws over different terrain; after Davenport (1965) Source: Plate. Aerodynamic characteristics Oak Ridge, Tennessee, 1 972.
