Vertical wind and air temperature profile related parameters in the surface layer at the edge of a suburban area of Zagreb Capital in Croatia has been studied.  For that purpose, adopted Monin–Obukhov similarity theory and a comprehensive  Campbell Scientific Inc. observation system  of wind and air temperature at 2 and 10 m above ground, recorded since 2013, have been used. The results confirmed  estimation of effective roughness lengths dependent on eight wind direction sectors indicated before. Gratefully to that achievement,  a representativeness of wind data at standard 10-m height can be clarified more deeply for an area of at least about 1 km in upwind direction from the observation site which can be used in numerical weather prediction or atmospheric pollution modelling.
