Abstract : The following problems associated with the effect of temperature stratification on turbulence are discussed: (1) the effect of stratification on the vertical turbulent fluxes of momentum, heat and moisture; (2) the symmetric properties of turbulence in a temperature stratified medium; (3) similarity hypotheses for the inertially convective interval of turbulence spectrum in a stability stratified medium; (4) the limiting cases of instability and stability. The influence of temperature stratification and turbulence is described with the aid of three parameters-the buoyancy parameter, the friction velocity and the so-called 'temperature flux'. (Author)
