About this book

This book presents a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) research. It focuses on experimental ABL research, rather than from a theoretical or fluid dynamics point of view, and it discusses such new subjects as micro-rain radars and the use of ceilometers for ABL profiling.

Contents

1. Introduction.- 2. Analytical description and vertical structure of the ABL.- 3. Basic principles of surface-based remote sensing.- RADAR.- SODAR.- RASS.- LIDAR.- Radiometers.- 4. Applications.- Vertical layering of the ABL.- Vertical profiles of atmospheric variables.- Vertical flux profiles.- Regional and local flow systems.- Conclusions on the applicability of ground-based remote sensing for ABL research and monitoring.- 5.
