Boundary layer Meteorology Atmospheric physics. Garratt emphasizes the application of the ABL problems to numerical modeling of the climate, which makes this book unique among recent texts on the subject.

This is particularly relevant to current research because the extensive stratocumulus regions over the subtropical oceans and stratus regions over the Arctic have been identified as key players in the climate system.

This shows that wind shear is dominant at the surface while thermal buoyancy prevails at the upper level. Be the first to add this to a list.

Modeling of the ABL is crucially dependent for its realism on the surface boundary conditions, so chapters four and five deal with aerodynamic and energy considerations, with attention given to both dry and wet land surfaces and the sea.

There is an emphasis on the application of the ABL to numerical modelling of the climate. Lists What are lists? These 2 locations in Victoria: The author next treats the structure of the clear-sky, thermally stratified ABL, including the convective and stable cases over homogeneous land, the marine ABL, and the internal boundary layer at the coastline. Chapter 7 then extends the discussion to the cloudy ABL.

This is seen as particularly relevant, since the extensive stratocumulus regions over the subtropical oceans and stratus regions over the Arctic are now identified as key players in the climate system.
