The turbulent fluxes from various places inside an urban street canyon for a variety of upwind conditions were analyzed. It was found that the conditions inside the canyon are entirely different from those at the rooftops. The shear stress inside the canyon was found to be sensitive to upwind condition. Turbulence quantities such as TKE and average momentum fluxes were high on the rooftops, while their value at the bottom part of the canyon was very small.
