Boundary Layer Processes & Applications

The focus of this group is to advance the understanding of atmospheric boundary-layer processes and promote improved prediction, modeling and analysis of weather, climate, and hydrology. We strive to improve the characterization, understanding, and capability to predict boundary layer structure and phenomena through application of expertise in remote sensing, boundary layer physics, and numerical modeling. We apply these improvements to advance specific research and forecasting areas that have a strong dependence on boundary layer processes, such as air quality, hurricanes, and renewable energy.
