Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 230)


The properties of small-scale atmospheric turbulence and its influence on larger-scale flows are briefly described, with particular reference to the effects of stratification. The questions for which no satisfactory answers are presently available are reviewed.
