System of planetary boundary layers of the ocean and atmosphere

Meteorological characteristics (the geostrophic wind velocity, temperature, specific humidity and net radiation flux) at the upper boundary of the atmospheric PBL, and hydrological characteristics (the geostrophic current velocity, temperature and salinity) at the lower boundary of the ocean PBL) serve as external parameters for a system of two PBLs. It is these parameters which determine one or other structures of the PBL system, conditions at the interface and internal connections between the separate elements.

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
