Aerodynamic resistance

Also known as drag, aerodynamic resistance is the force the air exerts on an object that is parallel and opposite to the object’s direction of flow relative to the object. In other words, the resistance of the air to the movement of an object through it. Aerodynamic resistance affects the transfer of water from the evaporating surface into the air above the forest canopy.
