Abstract : Three hypotheses for a diabatic surface boundary layer were examined (as a function of the gradient Richardson number) by numerical integration methods. The models are presented in tabular form in terms of diabatic wind influence function, the gradient stability ratio and a universal function that corrects for thermal stratification in unstable air.
