Similarity Theory, Intermittency and Turbulences in the Stable Boundary Layer
The evaluation of similarity theory, z-less formulation of turbulence, and validation for various stable conditions is addressed with the use of CASES99 data over grassland. The dependence of the flux-gradient relationships on height and stability parameters is evaluated. For very stable conditions, similarity relation based on Monin-Obukhov theory is locally invalid and new treatments are required. The flux intermittency is recommended as a good indicator of stability for very thin stable boundary layer.
