      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

      Article
      Open Access
      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 ...

    • The BLLAST field experiment: boundary-layer late afternoon and sunset turbulence 

      Lothon, Marie; Lohou, Fabienne; Pino González, David (2014-10-16)
      Article
      Open Access
      Due to the major role of the sun in heating the earth’s surface, the atmospheric planetary boundary layer over land is inherently marked by a diurnal cycle. The after-noon transition, the period of the day that connects ...
    • 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 ...
