    • Countergradient heat flux observations during the evening transition period 

      Blay Carreras, Estel; Pardyjak, Eric; Pino González, David; Alexander, Daniel; Lohou, Fabienne; Lothon, Marie (2014-09-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      Gradient-based turbulence models generally assume that the buoyancy flux ceases to introduce heat into the surface layer of the atmospheric boundary layer in temporal consonance with the gradient of the local virtual ...
    • Lifted temperature minimum during the atmospheric evening transition 

      Blay-Carreras, Estel; Pardyjak, Eric; Pino González, David; Hoch, Sebastian; Cuxart Rodamillans, Joan; Martínez, Daniel; Reuder, Joachim (2015-06-29)
      Article
      Open Access
      Observations of lifted temperature minimum (LTM) profiles in the nocturnal boundary layer were first reported in 1932. It was defined by the existence of a temperature minimum some centimetres above the ground. During the ...

      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 boundary ...
