      The transition from a well-mixed convective boundary layer to a residual layer overlying a stabilized nocturnal layer raises several issues, which remain difficult to address from both modeling and observational perspectives. ...
    • Role of the residual layer and large-scale subsidence on the development and evolution of the convective boundary layer

      Observations, mixed-layer theory and the Dutch Large-Eddy Simulation model (DALES) are used to analyze the dynamics of the boundary layer during an intensive operational period (1 July 2011) of the Boundary Layer Late ...
    • Turbulence vertical structure of the boundary layer during the afternoon transition 

      Darbieu, Clara; Lohou, Fabienne; Lothon, Marie; Vilà Guerau de Arellano, Jordi; Couvreux, Fleur; Durand, Pierre; Pino González, David; Patton, Edward; Nilsson, Erik; Blay-Carreras, Estel; Gioli, Beniamino (2015-09-09)

      We investigate the decay of planetary boundary layer (PBL) turbulence in the afternoon, from the time the surface buoyancy flux starts to decrease until sunset. Dense observations of mean and turbulent parameters ...
