Abstract
Data from the SABLES98 experimental campaign (Cuxart et al., 2000) have been used in order to study the relationship of the probability distribution of velocity increments (PDFs) to the scale and the degree of stability. This connection is demonstrated by means of the velocity structure functions and the PDFs of the velocity increments. Using the hypothesis of local similarity, so that the third order structure function scaling exponent is one, the inertial range in the Kolmogorov sense has been...
