a more local scale, Anthes (1984) found that bandwidths of about 20 km or wider are needed in order to produce vertical circulations extending to heights of 1 km or more in the atmosphere. Banta and White (2003) observed that the mixing height difference caused by small-scale landscape variability decreases from 600 m to negligible values as the ambient wind increases from 1 to 6 m s −1 . De Ridder and Gallée (1998) found that, when the soil moisture availability increases in a semiarid

accurate simulation of the surface fluxes ensures that the model’s surface fluxes are adjusted so that a greater consistency is obtainable between soil temperature and moisture and the surface/subsurface mass-field variables. The assimilation of the offshore QuikSCAT surface wind vector over the ocean surface is expected to improve the simulation of the surface winds. The enhanced surface fields in turn are expected to improve the PBL and possibly even the free atmosphere through entrainment as a
