Abstract:

The effects of various types of albedo and mois ture conditions at the earths surface on the soil and atmospheric boundary layers are studied theoretically by numerical integrations of a physical model. In order to investigate the ef fect of albedo, three different types were con sidered - a natural grass-covered flat surface, a black surface, and a white surface. For mois ture, the three types used are the natural grass-covered surface, a wet surface, and a dry surface. The subsequent changes of the tempera ture, wind, and moisture fields under these various conditions in response to solar radia tion using identical initial distributions are analyzed. Author
