The modification of the flow structure arising from the removal of large patches of trees in a managed forest plantation near Gainesville, Florida is described. Using wavelet analysis of turbulence measurements taken above a forest canopy, the present paper illustrates changes in flow characteristics and shows that the presence of the nearby clearcut introduces extraneous coherent events passing by the eddy-covariance flux measurement system.
