Atmospheric Boundary Layers Nature, Theory, and Application to Environmental Modelling and Security / edited by Alexander Baklanov, Branko Grisogono.

Most of practically-used turbulence closure models are based on the concept of downgra- ent transport. Accordingly the models express turbulent uxes of momentum and scalars as products of the mean gradient of the transported property and the corresponding turbulent transport coef cient (eddy viscosi...
