Evolution of the turbulence during the afternoon transition of the convective boundary layer: a spectral analysis Darbieu, Clara; Lohou, Fabienne; Lothon, Marie; Couvreux, Fleur; Pino González, David; Durand, Pierre; Blay Carreras, Estel; Vilà Guerau de Arellano, Jordi (American Meteorological Society, 2014)
Open AccessThe 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 Blay Carreras, Estel; Pino González, David; Vilà Guerau de Arellano, Jordi; van de Boer, Anneke; de Coster, Olivier; Darbieu, Clara; Hartogensis, Oskar; Lohou, Fabienne; Lothon, Marie; Pietersen, Henk (2014-01-01)
Open AccessObservations, 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 ...

Open AccessWe 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 ...
