Let me add to the previous answer: In mixing length theory the mixing length is often defined as the friction velocity ${u^*}$ divided by the vertical shear $\frac{dU}{dz}$. Both of these quantities can be measured more or less directly at different heights. In the absence of buildings/canopy the mixing length is to a first approximation proportional to ${z}$...
