Resistance and heat-transfer laws for stable and neutral planetary boundary layers: old theory advanced and re-evaluated
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2005-07)
The planetary boundary layer (PBL) resistance and heat-transfer laws express the surface fluxes of momentum and heat through the PBL governing parameters. Since the late sixties, the dimensionless coefficients (A, B and ...
The impact of ensemble filter definition on the assimilation of temperature profiles in the tropical Pacific
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2005-10)
The traditional analysis scheme in the Ensemble Kalman Filter (EnKF) uses a stochastic perturbation or randomization of the measurements which ensures a correct variance in the updated ensemble. An alternative so called ...
The Influence of large convective eddies on the surface-layer turbulence
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2006-06)
Close to the surface large coherent eddies consisting of plumes and downdraughts cause convergent winds blowing towards the plume axes, which in turn cause wind shears and generation of turbulence. This mechanism strongly ...
