General Basics

  • Thomas Foken


This introductory chapter provides the basics for this book, and terms such as micrometeorology, atmospheric boundary layer, and meteorological scales are defined and presented in relation to the subject matter of this book. Besides an historical outline, the energy and water balance equations at the Earth’s surface and the transport processes are discussed. The first chapter of the book focus on the micrometeorological basics, which are then expanded in the following theoretical and experimental chapters.


Heat Flux Atmospheric Boundary Layer Latent Heat Flux Turbulent Flux Soil Heat Flux 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
