Abstract : The report examines a method of solving the problem on the transformation of a complex of meteorological elements, including the coefficient of turbulence in an air mass which develops into an underlying surface with essentially new properties. The task is solved by sequential approximations. Through a series of mathematical arguments, the report derives an expression for the first approximation. Some calculations which will make it possible to determine the degree of influence of the turbulence regime change consideration on the transformation of the temperature and humidity fields are given. Boundary conditions are calculated and presented. It is evident from the graphs that the indicated condition doubles the value of fluxes at sufficiently large distances from the edge, where the changes of the turbulence coefficient are at a maximum.
