Abstract

The structure of the steady-state flow, homogeneous along an inclined, flat, underlying surface, is studied. On the basis or the atmospheric boundary layer equations the resistance laws of geostrophic drag and heat transfer are obtained. The general form of the resistance law universal functions is found. The slope influence is shown in the figures, which were obtained by numerical solution of the resistance laws.
