We use the Navier-Stokes equations linearized about the turbulent mean velocity profile to estimate the instantaneous velocity field and 2-D energy spectrum of a turbulent channel flow at a friction Reynolds number of Reτ = 2000. Spectral linear stochastic estimation is used to build the estimator. The estimator takes as input the instantaneous streamwise velocity field (u) or the two-dimensional (2-D) energy spectrum of u at one wall-normal location to provide the estimate of the same quantity at a different wall-normal location. Estimators built using two variations of the linear model are considered here: i) LNS, where the ..
