AFM-8: Boundary Layer Research for BOREAS

P.I.(s): Alan Betts -- Atmospheric Research
Co-I(s): Tony Hollingsworth -- European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF)

Objectives: This is a modeling study designed to help us understand the diurnal evolution of convective boundary layer over the boreal forest. The approach is to analyze surface, boundary layer and cloud data from BOREAS using simplified conceptual models, and prepare compacted data bases for comparison with large-scale models. The PI assisted with the design of the surface and upper air networks, and the aircraft measurement program for BOREAS, and is working to optimize the boundary layer and mesoscale components of the experiment. The ECMWF GCM is also being used to perform post-analysis work.
