Short summary
Stable-boundary-layer processes have been analysed using BLLAST data. Shallow drainage flows were formed at some locations after the near calm stage of the late afternoon. This stage ended with the arrival of a deeper wind associated with the mountain-plain circulation. At the same time, gravity waves were detected with an array of microbarometers. The interaction of these processes with turbulence was studied through multi-resolution flux decomposition at different sites and heights.
