Land surface and Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL)
Sun and Ogura (1979) presented a second order closure scheme for moist atmosphere. Their parameterization is capable of reproducing moisture and heat fluxes, as well as the covariance between moisture and temperature, etc. as observed. Sun and Chang (1986a, b) and Sun (1988, 1989) expanded the Sun and Ogura parameterization and developed a new high-order turbulence air pollution model. By including the covariance of temperature and concentration, this simulator is the first turbulence-parameterization model to reproduce both descending and bouncing of high concentration (due to a strong counter-gradient flux of concentration), in the convective boundary layer observed by Deardorff and Willis in the laboratory.
