Abstract
A combination of methods originating from nonstationary timeseries analysis is applied to two datasets of near surface turbulence in order to gain insights on the nonstationary enhancement mechanism of intermittent turbulence in the stable atmospheric boundary layer (SBL). We identify regimes of SBL turbulence for which the range of timescales of turbulence and submeso motions, and hence their scale separation (or lack of separation) differs. Ubiquitous flow structures, or events, are extracted from the turbulence data in each flow regime. We relate flow regimes characterised by very stable stratification but different scales activity to a signature of flow structures thought to be submeso motions.
