Removed "Wikifying" and "Confusing" stubsEdit

I did a fair amount of Wikifying by adding more inline links, more categories, creating "See also" and "References" sections, and a small bit of expansion. I think it no longer needs the "Wikifying" tag and I removed it.

The subject matter involves a quite technical subject and uses a good deal of terminology quite easily understood by people knowlegeable in the field. I see no way in which it can be "dumbed down" so that people with no knowledge of the field can readily understand it. Therefore, I removed the "Confusing" tag. - mbeychok 17:24, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Inconsistency with the power law articleEdit

This is from the Wind profile power law article:

The wind profile of the atmospheric boundary layer (surface to around 2000 metres) is generally logarithmic in nature and is best approximated using the log wind profile equation that accounts for surface roughness and atmospheric stability. The wind profile power law relationship is often used as a substitute for the log wind profile when surface roughness or stability information is not available.

And this is from this article:

The log wind profile is generally considered to be a more reliable estimator of mean wind speed than the Wind profile power law in the lowest 10-20 m of the planetary boundary layer. Between 20 m and 100 m both methods can produce reasonable predictions of mean wind speed in neutral atmospheric conditions. From 100 m to near the top of the atmospheric boundary layer the power law produces more accurate predictions of mean wind speed (assuming neutral atmospheric conditions).[2]

Which of the two articles are right? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.225.20.55 (talk) 10:15, 30 August 2012 (UTC)
