Course Description
This course gives a comprehensive explanation of micrometeorology, its basic theories of physics, mechanisms, measurement procedures and methods, and how micrometeorological processes interact and affect the meso- and large-scale atmospheric motion. Atmospheric boundary layer, the importance of turbulence in the atmospheric boundary layer, and its effects are determined. Surface energy budget, radiation balance, soil temperature, heat transfer, dynamic stability are studied. Near-neutral boundary is examined. Similarity hypothesis are learned. The methods for determining momentum and heat fluxes are studied.
