Abstract : Contents: Principal problems arising in the organization of observations on the meteorological tower; Results of meteorological observations on the high tower; Indirect evaluation of temperature advection and the mixing coefficient from smoothed temperature observations made from a tower; Analysis of an experimental series of measurements of the heat and radiation balance; Certain characteristics of the turbulence of the wind field in the lower 300-meter layer of the atmosphere; The turbulent diffusion of an aerosol settling from a point source located in the lower layer of the atmosphere; Thermodynamic model of an idealized purely thermal vertical circulation of the atmosphere; The use of thermodynamics for evaluation of the extreme values of kinetic energy dissipation in the atmosphere when a wind is blowing; Experience with studying the wind field around a cylindrical tower with balconies; Reduction of random errors of smoothing data obtained in measurements on meteorological towers; Use of emulsion polymers as artificial aerosols; and A method of investigation of the distribution of an artificial aerosol in the surface boundary layer.
