An incoherent scintillometer with 0.31-m aperture was testedalong a 9.8-km path over grassland. Scintillometer derived heat fluxes were comparedwith in situ eddy covariance measurements. Albeit with considerable scatter, the fluxescompared well during daytime. During nighttime credible fluxes are also obtained. The scintillometerfunctioned satisfactory for 96% of the 7-week period.
