Documentation for the boundary layer in the UM

Description

Hi!

Is there any documentation of the UM boundary layer?
The document on the website, UM documentation 24, only discusses parametrization of turbulent fluxes above the surface but not any surface fluxes.
I've found an old document called P24 that describes the sub-surface and surface fluxes.
However, it's from 2000 and written for UM V4.5.
Surely there have been some modifications to the surface fluxes since 2000??

Cheers,

Nina

Hi Nina,

Apologies for the long delay in responding.

There is a slightly newer version of P24 dated 2003 under the UM Version5.5 documentation. This is the most up-to-date version we have.

You can access this from the link below (Note: you will not see the version 5.5 documentation until you login using the link at the bottom of the page.)

If this is no help let me know and I'll see if there is anything else available.

Regards, Ros.
