Different physical scale models require determination of the vegetation canopy aerodynamic characteristics for calculating the transfer of energy, mass and momentum between the atmosphere and the vegetation-covered surface of the earth. The K-theory inside the canopy was used to obtain a transdental equation for the extinction coefficient, whose solution allows the calculation of zero plane displacement height and roughness length. The proposed procedure is used for calculating the above aerodynamic characteristics for different types of vegetation.
