### Convective Boundary Layer Mean Depth in Clear Air

· Convective Boundary Layer Mean Depth in Clear Air. The fair-weather convective boundary layer is characterized by rising thermals of aerosol-rich air and sinking streams of clearer air. These vertical motions cause irregularities of the boundary layer top which can be observed from the RHI scans of the VIL (see Figure 4 ).

Dispersion in the planetary boundary layer (PBL) is controlled by the mean and turbulent structure of that layer. In the past decade significant progress has occurred in our understanding of PBL structure and diffusion especially for the daytime convective boundary layer (CBL). As discussed in Ch. 1 this has resulted from the collective

The signature of such convective phenomena in the atmosphere is visible on the clouds. When the water vapor rises in altitude the pressure and temperature drops. Condensation occurs and small cumulus clouds appear at the top of the mixed layer. This cotton like pattern of cumulus clouds is a typical signature of a convective boundary layer.

During the temporal evolution the boundary layer continuously warms up hence the temperature profiles shift to the right mainly maintaining the shape of the profile (quasi-stationary). At the boundary-layer top the evolution of the profiles indicates that the inversion

Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) boundary layer flow of a nanofluid over an exponentially stretching sheet was studied. The governing boundary layer equations are reduced into ordinary differential equations by a similarity transformation. The transformed equations are solved numerically using the Nactsheim-Swigert shooting technique together with Runge-Kutta six-order iteration schemes.

### Characteristics of Decaying Convective Boundary Layers

The decay of the Convective Boundary Layer (CBL) is studied using large-eddy simulations of free and advective CBLs in which surface heat supply is suddenly cut off. After the cutoff coherent convective circulations last about one convective time scale and then fade away. In the mixed layer the decay time scale increases with height indicating that nonlocal eddies decay slower than near
