Results of the analysis of air temperature structure functions in the ground layer of the atmosphere over an inhomogeneous underlying surface are presented. Based on processing of experimental data, three main types of structure functions are distinguished and models of their parameterization in the range of shifts related to the inertial turbulence interval are proposed. Repeatability of the distinguished types of structure functions in different seasons at the observation point over an urbanized territory is estimated.
