-As the UTCI calculation expects the wind given at the 10 m level, ENVI-met BioMet uses the calculated local wind speed in the model domain related to the pedestrian level (zlevel) and scales it up to the  10 m level equivalent using the logarithmic wind power profile  +As the UTCI calculation expects the wind given at the 10 m level, ENVI-met BioMet uses the calculated local wind speed in the model domain related to the pedestrian level ($zlevel$) and scales it up to the  10 m level equivalent using the logarithmic wind power profile  
-$$ Wind_{10m} ​:= \frac{ln(10 / z0)}{ln(zlevel / z0)} \cdot Wind_{zlevel}$$+$$ Wind_{10m} = \frac{ln(10 / z0)}{ln(zlevel / z0)} \cdot Wind_{zlevel}$$
  
 In other word, if you calculate UTCI at some point for zlevel= 1.6 m, all ENVI-met data such as air temperature or radiative temperature will be used from this level, except of the wind speed which will be extrapolated to the 10 m level value. In other word, if you calculate UTCI at some point for zlevel= 1.6 m, all ENVI-met data such as air temperature or radiative temperature will be used from this level, except of the wind speed which will be extrapolated to the 10 m level value.
