The dispersion of trace gases in the atmosphere depends on the state of the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) and one of the most important parameters characterizing it is the intensity of turbulence within the ABL. Hence, the reliability of the atmospheric dispersion models depends on the way turbulent parameters are calculated and related to the structure of the ABL
