Abstract

The Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX) is a program initiated by the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) to observe, understand and model the hydrological cycle and the related energy fluxes in the atmosphere, at the land surface and in the upper oceans. Consequently the atmospheric boundary layer is an important aspect of the energy and water cycle, which has become crucially important in this new age of coupled atmosphere-land surface-ocean modelling. As such, in 2001, the GEWEX Atmospheric Boundary-layer Study (GABLS) was established. The overall objective of GABLS is to improve the understanding and the representation of the atmospheric boundary layer in regional and large-scale climate models. Such activity is important in itself and also very relevant for other activities in GEWEX, and more generally for the activities within WCRP and the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program (IGBP).
