Abstract Various models have been proposed to predict changes in scalar concentrations and surface fluxes following an abrupt change in surface conditions. In most cases the boundary conditions used to describe the surface represent limiting cases such as a step change in either concentration, flux or surface resistance. Three main conclusions emerge from a review of experimental results published thus far. Firstly, a dry-to-wet transition can be treated as a step change in concentration, after… CONTINUE READING
