[1] Boundary layer turbulence plays a central role in determining the strength of the overall atmospheric circulation by affecting the intensity of exchange of heat, mass, and momentum at the Earth’s surface. It is often parameterized using the bulk formula, in which the vonKarman parameter plays a critical role. Here we conducted a range of sensitivity simulations with an atmospheric general circulation model in which we modified the strength of boundary layer turbulence by varying the von… CONTINUE READING
