Abstract

Several theories of the planetary boundary layer that retain the flow accelerations in approximate form are compared. Two special test cases focus on the role of either local or convective accelerations. The semigeotriptic theory of Cullen predicts the boundary layer pumping most accurately for the cases and parameter range considered here.
