# Dynamical sublayer

From AMS Glossary

## dynamical sublayer

A layer of order 1–10 m in thickness adjacent to the surface, where influences of stratification and Coriolis force are negligible, but far enough away from the surface that viscous and individual roughness-element effects are negligible.

Namely, it is where , where
