Abstract

A concept for the mixing length in diabatic conditions is introduced and elaborated. The basic idea is that convective energy has effect on the mixing length but not on the size of the largest eddies. The theory developed on this concept of the mixing length for the diabatic wind profile gives satisfactory agreement with observations over a wide stability range.
