Boundary Layer Meteorology

The course covers fundamental aspects of earth's atmospheric boundary layer. The learning objectives are:

•   Distinguish Atmospheric Boundary Layer (ABL) from rest of the       troposphere.
•   Understand diurnal evolution and structure of the ABL.
•   Identify important characteristics of the ABL.
•   Learn internal boundary layer formation due to heterogeneous surface.
•   Get familiar with surface energy balance.
•   Understand turbulent transport of energy and mass in the boundary layer
•   Become familiar with conservation equations in the boundary layer and closure problem
•   Understand turbulent kinetic energy and its budget in the boundary layer
•   Understand Ekman layer concept
•   Have general understanding on atmospheric turbulence
•   Learn about turbulence spectra in the atmospheric boundary layer
•   Learn about micrometeorological measurements
