Short summary
The ergodic theorem of stationary random processes is introduced to analyse and verify the ergodicity of atmospheric turbulence measured using the eddy-covariance technique with two sets of field observational data. The results show that the ergodicity of atmospheric turbulence in atmospheric boundary layer is relative not only to the atmospheric stratification but also to the eddy scale of atmospheric turbulence.
