Topics in Micrometeorology. A Festschrift for Arch Dyer

Within the micrometeorological literature, reference is usually made to the 'Businger-Dyer Profiles' or the 'Dyer-Businger profiles/relations' with no concerning the foundation of those kin. for instance, within the textbook on 'Atmospheric Turbulence' via Panofsky and Dutton (1984) on p. 134, reference is made to the 'Businger-Dyer formula'.

Toxic Turmoil: Psychological and Societal Consequences of Ecological Disasters

While an coincidence includes many of us and whilst its effects are many and critical, we converse of a catastrophe. failures have an analogous causal fac­ tors as injuries: they fluctuate from injuries via the gravity of outcomes, now not through explanations. The motion of a unmarried person can result in millions of deaths and enormous monetary losses.

The composited amplitudes again appear weak compared to many of the individual transition zones due to some phase interference in the compositing. The weak vertical motion and large av/ay in the convergent zone, suggest that either au/ax or aw/az must also be large. In contrast, the composited divergent zone (Figure Sb) is characterized by significant upward motion and roughly SO% stronger horizontal temperature gradient. The significant horizontal temperature structure for both the convergent and divergent transitions suggests that the flows on either side of the transition zones have originated from different levels.

Sea-surface temperatures (SST), identified as Ts and converted to a potential temperature Os, were measured with a Barnes PRT-5 radiometer. 3 K in Case 4; potential temperature differences do show a systematic decrease in both cases with increase in x, and although turbulence quantities and mean wind exhibit an increase with increasing x for Case 4, this is not seen in Case 3. Sensible heat fluxes into the sea surface are negligible in the more stable case, and in Case 4 are comparable with values typically seen in the nocturnal 32 J.
