Abstract
We study the influence of the large-scale at- mospheric contribution to the dynamics of the convective boundary layer (CBL) in a situation observed during the Boundary Layer Late Afternoon and Sunset Turbulence (BLLAST) field campaign. We employ two modeling ap- proaches, the mixed-layer theory and large-eddy simulation (LES), with a complete data set of surface and upper-air at- mospheric observations, to quantify the contributions of the advection of heat ...
