A micrometeorological field experiment was performed within the frame of the 67,1+2-project (67ructure of turbulent transport under ,1+2mogeneous conditions) at the boundary layer field site of the Meteorological Observatory Lindenberg of the German Meteorological Service (Deutscher Wetterdienst) in the summer of 2002 in order to investigate the interaction of thermally heterogeneous surfaces with the turbulent atmosphere. The intention was to compare conventional meteorological point and vertically integrated measurements with area-covering air flow observations and numerical simulations. To observe horizontally variable flow and temperature fields above a heterogeneous land surface, simultaneous acoustic methods (travel time tomography), optical observation methods (IR-camera and lineintegrated scintillometer-measurements), as well as flight observational systems were used. The data set will be used in future to validate large-eddy simulations adjusted to the area of investigation.
