Abstract : In the lowest layers of the atmosphere, the wind, temperature, and moisture fields are greatly influenced by the characteristics of the underlying earth's surface. Attempts were made to develop certain types of numerical models of the lowest layers of the atmosphere. The results of the studies of the sea breeze phenomenon, the wind and temperature fields, and the upward flux of heat with these models are summarized in this report. (Author)
