Turbulence and Dispersion in the Planetary Boundary Layer

Turbulence and Dispersion in the Planetary Boundary Layer

Springer | Geophysics | Oct 30 2016 | ISBN-10: 3319436023 | 214 Pages | PDF | 6.11 mb

Authors: Tampieri, Francesco
Combines boundary-layer meteorology with a solid treatment of dispersion
Can also be used as a textbook with a chapter entirely dedicated to excercises
Conceptual aspects of different observational techniques are given in order to allow the reader to understand their advantages and limitations
Provides the physical meaning of numerical models highlighting advantages and shortcomings with respect to other choices

This book offers a comprehensive review of our current understanding of the planetary boundary layer, particularly the turbulent exchanges of momentum, heat and passive scalars between the surface of the Earth and the atmosphere. It presents and discusses the observations and the theory of the turbulent boundary layer, both for homogeneous and more realistic heterogeneous surface conditions, as well as the dispersion of tracers. Lastly it addresses the main problems arising due to turbulence in weather, climate and atmospheric composition numerical models. Written for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate-level students and atmospheric researchers, it is also of interest to anyone wanting to understand the findings and obtain an update on problems that have yet to be solved.
