Abstract Important questions concerning the turbulent exchange of atmospheric pollutants between the air and natural surfaces urgently require answers, but sensors for many important species are not yet sufficiently well developed for use with standard micrometeorological methods; hence, there is a need to develop methods by which deficient sensors can be used in micrometeorological applications. Here, methods based upon the assumption of cospectral similarity are explored. Initial tests indicate that it is possible to estimate daytime turbulent fluxes with sensors having response times considerably greater than values normally quoted and to compute first-order corrections for the error resulting from the lack of detection of high-frequency turbulence. It is suggested that a similar method might be used to derive flux data in terrain more complex than can be handled by conventional micrometeorology.
