The focus of this book is the atmospheric process which directly effect human environments within the lowest 100–1000 meters of the atmosphere over regions of only a few kilometers in extent. The book is the English translation of the third edition of the German book “Applied Meteorology – Micrometeorological Methods”. It presents, with selected examples, the basics of micrometeorology applied to disciplines such as biometeorology, agrometeorology, hydrometeorology, technical meteorology, environmental meteorology, and biogeoscience. The important issues discussed in this book are the transport processes and fluxes between the atmosphere and the underlying surface. Vegetated and heterogeneous surfaces are special subjects.
Update of the first edition: Actual status of the literature and somme additions. Additional material: Atmospheric boundary layer, high vegetation, applied meteorology like wind energy, land cover changes, urban meteorology, and importance of micrometeorology for climate change.
The author covers the areas of theory, measuring techniques, experimental methods and modeling in all the ways that can be used independently in teaching, research or practical applications.
