Abstract

A simple, steady-state, numerical model is used to examine the Rossby-number similarity theory of the atmospheric boundary layer over a slightly inclined terrain. The model confirms the similarity predictions. The slope-influenced universal profiles of the wind velocity defects and the stress components are obtained by the model simulation.
