.g., Angevine et al. 2001 ; Beare 2008 ) and late-afternoon transition (e.g., Grimsdell and Angevine 2002 ; van Heerwaarden and Mellado 2016 ) aim to bridge the gap in our understanding that lays between convective and stable boundary layer conditions. However, proper understanding of the interactions between even the most prominent processes that govern the dynamical evolution of the ABL during a diurnal cycle, including the transitional dynamics, remains elusive ( Lothon et al. 2014 ; LeMone et al

crossflow structure function Φ n = A n e ry , ϕ n was substituted into the potential vorticity equation in the rotated Cartesian coordinate system. Then the amplitude ratio A 2 / A 1 was obtained for each layer, and the two amplitude ratios from the upper and lower layer equations were combined to yield a relation for the crossflow wavenumber. Assuming an infinitely wide ocean, the boundary conditions for a crossflow structure function Φ n were: Φ n → 0 as y = H → ∞ (or y = − H → −∞) and d

ocean state that is crucial in the first-kind predictability of climate since this provides the possible “memory” of the system (although other factors such as variations in land cover may be important). Predictability of the second kind focuses on the boundary value problem: how predictable changes in the boundary conditions that affect climate can provide predictive power. A common class of second-kind predictability studies use atmosphere models with prescribed sea surface temperatures (SSTs) in

requires boundary conditions at rigid surfaces. The horizontal component of u + is related to the horizontal components of u ′ and u , and so vanishes on vertical sidewalls. The value of w + , the vertical component of u + , at surface or floor is less obvious. (Unlike the horizontal component of the quasi-Stokes velocity, there is no kinematic reason for w + to vanish, since w + exists to satisfy continuity.) The problems are best seen by considering recent direct eddy

dependence of uncertainty in the coastal ocean state on uncertainty in the wind forcing, in the initial conditions, and in the lateral boundary conditions, and by considering regional forecast-model analysis wind-forcing fields containing the strong spatial variations known to be induced by orographic and other effects. Predictions of the coastal ocean are influenced by a unique combination of processes. In coastal upwelling regimes such as that considered here, the mean wind stress drives Ekman
