Surface layer (SL) scalingMonin-Obukhov (MO) similarity theory (MOST) (Monin and Obukhov, 1956)

- Stationarity

- Horizontal homogeneity

- No radiation flux divergence

Local scaling concept for the SBLNieuwstadt (1984), Holtslag and Nieuwstadt (1986)

  • - Stationarity

  • - Horizontal homogeneity

  • No TKE flux divergence
