    • E1. Mean Velocity Profile in a Sheared and Thermally Stratified Atmospheric Boundary Layer 

      Katul, Gabriel G.; Konings, Alexandra; Porporato, Amilcare (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Most human activity and biological processes occur within the lower atmosphere, a thermally stratified region characterized by shear and buoyancy-driven turbulence. Thermal stratification arises because of diurnal heating ...
    • E2. Working with Wilfried Brutsaert: Some Old and New Results on Radiative Dissipation of Temperature Fluctuations and Scalar Similarity in the Surface Layer 

      Dias, Nelson Luís (2012-05)
      There is a style of thinking and approaching a problem to be learned from every good teacher. In this presentation, an attempt is made at giving an objective account of two subjects that I worked on as W. Brutsaert’s ...
    • E3. Large Eddy Simulation Study of Scalar Transport in a Wind Turbine Array Atmospheric Boundary Layer 

      Meneveau, Charles (2012-05)
      The structure of the turbulent atmospheric boundary layer is affected by the presence of thermal stratification. Brutsaert’s contributions to understanding and parameterizing such effects have had great impact in the field. ...
    • E4. Probing the Atmospheric Boundary Layer: a Life-long Adventure Thanks to Wilfried Brutsaert 

      Parlange, Marc; Katul, Gabriel; Eichinger, William; Albertson, John; Szilagyi, Jozsef; Cahill, Tony; Porte-Agel, Fernando; Kleissl, Jan; Pahlow, Markus; Bou-Zeid, Elie; Higgins, Chad; Adam, Mariana; Kumar, Vijayant; Chamecki, Marcelo; Vercauteren, Nikki; Froidevaux, Martin; Calaf, Marc; Nadeau, Daniel; Simeonov, Valentin; Meneveau, Charles (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      During the 1986 Hapex-Mobilhy field campaign, deep in the middle of Les Landes pine forest of southwest France, we released more than 500 radiosondes to measure vertical profiles of temperature, humidity and wind speed in ...
    • F1. An index of maximal land-atmosphere coupling and its use in estimating evaporative fraction across a range of Ameriflux sites 

      Salvucci, Guido D.; Gentine, Pierre (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Examination of heat and moisture fluxes at a wide range of Ameriflux sites reveals what appears to be an emergent property of the relative humidity profile, possibly due to strong coupling of the land-atmosphere system. ...
    • F2. Evaporation from Lake Kasumigaura: Bulk Coefficients and Spatial Distribution of Latent Heat Flux 

      Michiaki, Sugita; Zhongwang, Wei; Aiko, Miyano; Hiroya, Ikura (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Study of lake evaporation includes various aspects of Dr Brutsaert’s interests such as the exchange processes on water surface, the development of internal boundary layer, estimation of evaporation rate, among others. In ...
    • F3. Regional Evaporation Using Atmospheric Boundary Layer Profiles (a.k.a Brutsaert’s Balloons) 

      Kustas, William P. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Land surface temperature (LST) from thermal remote sensing is a surface boundary condition that is strongly linked to the partitioning of the available energy between latent (evapotranspiration) and sensible heat flux. ...
    • G1. Infiltration into Soils 

      Assouline, Shmuel (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    • G2. Snippets from Infiltration: Where Approximate Becomes Exact 

      Broadbridge, Philip (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      The Darcy-Buckingham macroscopic approach to soil-water modelling, leading to a nonlinear Richards’ diffusion-convection equation, has been very useful for many decades. Some sharp results of the 1970s by W. Brutsaert and ...
    • H1. Groenevelt Autobiography 

      Groenevelt, Pieter H. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Pieter H. Groenevelt, using time reallocated due to absence of a speaker, provided a broad view of his life experience and expressed his heartfelt gratitude for the generosity beyond belief he received after World War II.
    • H2. Hot Thermodynamics for Frozen Soils 

      Groenevelt, Pieter H. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Q. What is the driving force that lifts buildings, pipelines and roads into the air when the soil underneath freezes? A. Ask Clapeyron……A unifying theory is proposed, bringing together the CRRELL School of Duwayne Anderson ...
    • I1. Green’s Function and Watershed Modelling 

      Yeh, Gour-Tsyh (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Watershed modelling deals with multiple processes occurring in multiple media. The processes include flow and thermal, salinity, sediment, and biogeochemical transport. The multiple media cover stream/river/canal/open ...
    • I2. On the Brutsaert Baseflow Recessions and Their Geomorphic Origins 

      Rinaldo, Andrea; Parlange, Marc; Mutzner, Raphael; Tomasic, Nevena; Ceola, Serena; Bertuzzo, Enrico; Rodriguez-Iturbe, Ignacio (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Moving from a classic study on the base flow characteristics of six basins in the Finger Lakes region [1], a set of Brutsaert recession curves (the lower envelope of available records of |dQ/dt| as a function of Q, where ...
