  • Description:
    Recent advances in observing systems and models have led to a renewed interest in the special problems of coastal meteorology. In this report the boundary layer aspects of the coastal regime are examined. The current state of understanding is assessed for homogeneous boundary layers, surface interactions, internal boundary layers, and various inhomogeneous conditions. The inhomogeneities can be due to topography, landocean contrast, land-surface horizontal variations, or clouds. Surface-based remote sensing systems are ideal for studying the boundary layer on coastal scales. Six recently developed systems are described and their prospects for coastal studies discussed.
