    Abstract

    Near-surface turbulent fluxes observations from three large-scale surface-atmosphere interaction field experiments are studied. In the context of the extended Monin-Obukhov similarity theory, investigation was performed of aerodynamic roughness, scalar roughness, neutral drag coefficient, bulk transfer coefficient (sensible heat exchange coefficient and vapor analog) from a calm and a rough sea of the Nansha region separately, and of aerodynamic roughness and drag coefficients from Gobi, desert, oasis and the Tibetan plateau, together with the related distribution of the wind. Some meaningful results have been derived.
