Introduction The heat and water exchanges between the atmosphere and the ground surface are important processes for environmental studies. Heat energy and water supplied to the ground surface as solar and longwave radiation and precipitation are redistributed to the ground and the atmosphere through the ground-surface processes, becoming the driving force of atmospheric phenomena. Thus, the processes of heat and water exchanges at the ground surface play an important role in determining the

three year monthly mean, in the water vapor distribution over the oceansduring the 1982-83 El Nifio event lead us to infer significant changes in the circulation of the lower layers ofthe atmosphere at that time. The intense phase oftbe El Nifio is accompanied by well-organized subsidence tothe west, north, and south of the convectively active zone that is over the near-equatorial regions of the centralPacific. As the convective zone intensifies and moves eastward the associated subsidence

applied to simulatetypical July conditions over that region. A similartype of simulation was previously performed byAnthes and Warner (1978). Their study provided thefirst modelling insight into the terrain-induced flowswithin the planetary boundary layer (PBL) over thisregion. However, that study did not simulate the prevalent synoptic flow over the region, nor was it oriented toward resolving the surface climatological patterns. In the current study, predicted surface flowpatterns have been compared

) shows that the larger the variability is in a signal f ( t ), the larger its integral scale is or the smaller the averaging time is, the lower the accuracy is of using f T as an estimate of the ensemble mean f . Let us consider two sets of geometrically similar experiments carried out under the same stability conditions in the laboratory (lab) and in the atmosphere (atm). Let us define ε = [( f T − f ) 2 ] 1/2 / f as the inherent uncertainty, so that from (6) with f = c̃, The ratio of

structure of the PBL with high vertical andhorizontal resolution. Parameters important for PBL modeling such as entrainment zone thickness, entrainmentrate, PBL height and relative heat flux can be inferred from the lidar data. It is suggested that wind shear at thePBL top may influence both entrainment and convective cell size.1.
