  • A conceptual framework to quantify the influence of convective boundary layer development on carbon dioxide mixing ratios 

    Pino González, David; Vilà-Guerau de Arellano, Jordi; Peters, Wouter; Schröter, Joel; van Heerwaarden, Chiel C.; Krol, Maarten (2012-03-26)
    Article
    Open Access
    Interpretation of observed diurnal carbon dioxide (CO2) mixing ratios near the surface requires knowledge of the local dynamics of the planetary boundary layer. In this paper, we study the relationship between the boundary ...

  • Formulation of the Dutch Atmospheric Large-Eddy Simulation (DALES) and overview of its applications 

    Vilà-Guerau de Arellano, Jordi; De Roode, Stephan; Pino González, David; Heus, Thijs; Van Heerwaarden, Chiel C.; Jonker, Harm J.J.; Siebesma, Pier; Axelsen, Simon; Van den Dries, Kees; Geoffroy, Oliver; Moene, Arnold F. (2010-09-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    The current version of the Dutch Atmospheric Large-Eddy Simulation (DALES) is presented. DALES is a large-eddy simulation code designed for studies of the physics of the atmospheric boundary layer, including convective and ...
  • Parameterization of entrainment in a sheared convective boundary layer using a first-order jump model 

    Kim, Si-Wan; Park, Soon-Ung; Pino González, David; Vilà-Guerau de Arellano, Jordi (Springer, 2006-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Basic entrainment equations applicable to the sheared convective boundary layer (CBL) are derived by assuming an inversion layer with a finite depth, i.e., the first-order jump model. Large-eddy simulation data are used ...
  • Representing Sheared Convective Boundary Layer by Zeroth- and First-Order-Jump 

    Pino González, David; Vilà-Guerau de Arellano, Jordi; Kim, Si-Wan (American Meteorological Society, 2006-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Dry convective boundary layers characterized by a significant wind shear on the surface and at the inversion are studied by means of the mixed-layer theory. Two different representations of the entrainment zone, each of ...
  • Role of boundary layer processes in understanding the CO2-budget 

    Pino González, David; Vilà-Guerau de Arellano, Jordi; Peters, Wouter (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Boundary layer dynamics, including surface pro- cesses determine the daily evolution of temperature and moisture in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL, Lemone et al., 2002). Moreover, turbulent mixing drives the ...
  • Role of boundary layer processes on the mixed layer CO2-budget

  • Studying the Boundary Layer Late Afternoon and Sunset Turbulence (BLLAST) 

    Vilà-Guerau de Arellano, Jordi; Pino González, David; Pardyjak, Erick; Mahrt, Larry; Lohou, Fabienne; Jonker, Harm J. J.; Gioli, Beniamino; Gibert, Fabien; Durand, Pierre; Lothon, Marie; Lenschow, Donald; Angevine, Wayne; Bange, Jens; Beare, Robert; Canut, Guylaine; Couvreux, Fleur; Delbarre, Hervé (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    At the end of the afternoon, when the surface heat fluxes start to sharply decrease, the CBL turns from a convective well-mixed layer to an intermittently turbulent residual layer overlying a stably-stratified ...
  • The boundary layer growth in an urban area 

    Pino González, David; Vilà-Guerau de Arellano, Jordi; Comerón Tejero, Adolfo; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco (ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2004-10-31)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The development and maintenance of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) plays a key role in the distribution of atmospheric constituents, especially in a polluted urban area. In particular, the ABL has a direct impact on ...
  • The Boundary Layer Late Afternoon and Sunset Turbulence 2011 field experiment (BLT) 

    Lothon, Marie; Lohou, Fabienne; Durand, Pierre; Couvreux, Fleur; Hartogensis, Oskar; Legain, Dominique; Pardyjak, Erick; Pino González, David; Reuder, Joaquim; Vilà-Guerau de Arellano, Jordi (2012)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Growth of the CBL over land in the middle of the day has been extensively observed and relatively successfully modeled. However the late afternoon transition (LAT), like the morning transition, is difficult to observe ...
  • Uncertainties in the CO2 budget associated to the diurnal variability of the boundary layer dynamics
