The similarity theory and the model of a turbulent flow over a natural large
scale roughness in pressure and temperature gradients are presented in the
The general analytical results such as the logarithmic mean veloc-
ity and temperature profiles for a turbulent flow over smooth and rough
surfaces, the temperature and velocity profiles for a turbulent natural con-
vection over a large scale roughness and the velocity defect law for the
Ekman layer over a rough surface have been obtained.
The similarity theory was widely applied to solve the turbulent flow prob-
lems including atmospheric problems (Brandt! , Monin & Obukhov ,
Zilitinkevich & Monin ).
The usual application of the similarity the-
ory concerns only the ave...
