Fundamentals of turbulence and the atmospheric boundary layer:
The atmospheric boundary layer occupies the lowest kilometre of the atmosphere and is responsible for controlling the transport of heat moisture and momentum between the surface and the free atmosphere above. The theoretical challenge comes from the turbulence in the boundary layer. In this lecture I shall present observations, computations and theory for the fundamental aspects of the atmospheric boundary layer.
