Abstract

A study has been carried out using the concepts of saturation point and conserved variable plots utilising the aerological observations collected at an inland station, Pune (18°32N, 73°51E, 559 m a.s.l.) during the summer monsoon seasons of 1980 and 1981 to investigate the impact of low level clouds on equilibrium structures in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL). The days have been categorized according to the distribution of clouds vis-a-vis equilibrium structure of ABL. The study suggested a close association between amount of clouds in the lower atmosphere and the thermodynamical characteristics of ABL. The results of the study are discussed.
