The atmospheric boundary layer spans from the earth's surface to the height of about 1km. Since this layer is turbulent, it undergoes efficient exchanges of the momentum, heat, mass, and so on. They eventually affect the atmospheric phenomena as a whole. However, such processes of turbulence are still uncertain. By means of numerical simulations, laboratory experiments, and field observations, we study the atmospheric boundary layer to improve the parameterization for those processes in the numerical weather prediction.
