From Stull (), An Intro. To Boundary Layer. Meteorology (see also Garratt's Fig. ). e.g. Wangara day. 33 at eas_SBL_Delage. Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society · Volume , Issue An introduction to boundary layer meteorology. By Roland B. Stull. Reidel. J. R. Garratt The atmospheric boundary layer Cambridge. University Press, ➢ R. B. Stull An introduction to boundary layer meteorology. Kluwer Academic.
Stull introduces into what I like to call the "classical" meteorological point of view of boundary layer physics.
The text is well organized within 14 chapters with the following titles: mean boundary layer characteristics; some mathematical and conceptual tools part 1, statistics ; application of the governing equations to turbulent flow; prognostic equations for turbulent fluxes and variances; turbulence kinetic energy, stability, and scaling; turbulence closure techniques; boundary conditions and external forcings; some mathematical and conceptual tools part 2, time series ; similarity theory; measurement and simulation techniques; convective mixed layer; stable boundary layer; boundary layer clouds; geographic effects.
Several useful appendices are added. The subject index is very detailed.
To understand the book, the basics of general meteorology and theory including thermodynamics, dynamics and radiative transfer are required. The language is brief and lucid. Many figures with qualitative and quantitative results illustrate the text.
Presentation of the theoretical material is simple and reduced to a m i n i m u m leaving many derivations as exercises to the reader. Thus, reading the book for review was an enjoyable task.
Roland B. Stull's book on boundary layer meteorology is the first one covering almost completely the whole subject.
Some weaknesses somewhat too short presentations in the chapters on measurement and simulation techniques, boundary layer clouds, and geographic effects do not lessen significantly its overall quality.
Because of the many references being added to each chapter, the book allows to easily find the relevant background literature for each topic. Thus the book may be an excellent starting point for students or even researchers who want to go beyond the scopes of the book.
