By Alexander Baklanov, Branko Grisogono, A. Baklanov, B. Grisogono

This quantity offers peer-reviewed papers from the NATO complex learn Workshop on Atmospheric Boundary Layers held in April 2006. The papers are divided into thematic periods: nature and conception of turbulent boundary layers; boundary-layer flows: modeling and purposes to environmental safety; nature, conception and modeling of boundary-layer flows; air flows inside and above city and different complicated canopies: air-sea-ice interaction.

5. 1 and C f = 1 (see discussion of Eq. 7). Given U (z), (z) and N , Eqs. 14a, b allow determination of the turbulent fluxes, τ and Fθ , and the Obukhov length, L = τ 3/2 (−β Fθ )−1 , at the computational level z. Numerical solution to this system is simplified by the fact that the major terms on the right-hand sides are the logarithmic terms, and moreover, the second terms in square brackets are usually small compared to unity. Hence iteration methods should work efficiently. As a first approximation N , unknown until we determine the ABL height, is taken N = 0.
