The structure of the surface layer over homogeneous terrain is quite well understood, however there is not thorough knowledge of the corresponding structure over urban areas. The aim of this work is to study turbulent fluxes and variances in the framework of local similarity theory. A sonic anemometer and Vaisala weather station were mounted atop BT tower (at 190 m) from 2003 onwards. Implications include understanding local urban climates for weather prediction and pollutant dispersion purposes. [This work will be submitted to Boundary-Layer Meteorology for peer-review in late 2009.]
