Terrain heterogeneity at local and regional scales and its effect on the closure of the surface energy balance

WP 3

From 01/2010

Principal Investigator: Frank Beyrich
Staff: Jens-Peter Leps

The following detailed questions shall be answered in this work package:
  • What are the validity limits of different concepts to describe terrain heterogeneity?
  • At which altitude in the CBL does the surface influence vanish. On what parameters does this altitude depend?
  • How can the relevant heterogeneity scale be characterised?
  • Under which conditions and at which locations did internal boundary layers occur during STINHO-2 and LITFASS-2003 and how did they develop in time and space?
