Fitting the Uniform Shear Model to real data
The parameters of the Uniform Shear Model  are estimated in the least-square sense
The function "fitMann" is used to estimate the parameters of the uniform shear model  in the least-square sense. As an example, the fitting algorithm is applied to the Great Belt dataset used by Mann  and the Kaimal spectral model [2,3]. The present Matlab implementation was applied for offshore wind data .
The submission contains:
- the function fitMann.m
- An interactive example file Example.mlx
- An example where fitMann is applied on incomplete data.
- a data file greatbeltData that contains digitalized spectral estimate from the Great belt experiment
- The function mannTurb.m introduced in 
Any comment, suggestion or question is welcomed.
