By using an integrated form of the Businger-Dyer flux-gradient equations, routine measurements of wind speed and vertical temperature difference in the surface layer are related to low-level atmospheric turbulence and stability. It is suggested that surface wind speed and vertical temperature difference can be used directly to determine the vertical plume diffusion parameter for unstable conditions without using the conventional Pasquill stability index. Their application in the conventional stability scheme, for both stable and unstable conditions, is also discussed in detail.

The Advanced Study Program (ASP) Summer Colloquium is an annual event hosted at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado. From its inception in 1966, the summer program was designed to introduce doctoral students from all over the globe to emerging research areas related to the interests of the NCAR community. Its current goal and format is to gather approximately 25 graduate students and similar numbers of renowned scientists in atmospheric and related sciences to delve into a cutting-edge research topic for three weeks. Colloquia themes over the past 10 years have encompassed a broad range of
