      We study the influence of the large-scale at- mospheric contribution to the dynamics of the convective boundary layer (CBL) in a situation observed during the Boundary Layer Late Afternoon and ...

      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 ...
    • 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 ...
