Six individual investigators, who have conducted different but related meteorological research, present in-depth technical reviews of their work. Prime conclusions are that (1) a scale analysis shows that different models are necessary for meteorological processes on urban, regional and global scales; (2) for high resolution models of the nocturnal planetary boundary layer, K theory models are very efficient, realistic and useful; (3) the mixing height has a significant effect on climatology models; (4) second moment closure methods are useful for convective situations, properly testing counter gradient fluxes; (5) natural sources and pollutants acting at the surface of the earth are important for air quality simulation models; and (6) a combination of conventional micrometeorological and acoustic sounder techniques are sufficient for verifying locally applied inversion use, box, and regional scale models, and urban and regional models require a variety of in situ and remote observation.
