Abstract/Summary

The idea of relating surface fluxes and processes in the atmospheric surface layer to large-scale forcing has been introduced. Previous research has been reviewed to provide evidence that boundary layer structure and surface fluxes are linked. Present methods of surface flux determination have been assessed and the best method of flux calculation chosen for use in validation of fluxes derived from boundary layer structure. Two atmospheric boundary layer models have been implemented with a view to determining the surface flux dependencies by numerical experimentation; validation of the models has begun. A plan for future work has been outlined with both short term and long term objectives.
