Convective boundary layers (CBLs) are observed in the atmosphere and ocean, reproduced in wind tunnels, and investigated numerically with large-eddy simulation models. A host of data on vertical distribution of turbulent statistics and mean flow characteristics have been collected. The problem arises as to how we can compare the data representing CBLs of different geometrical scales, in different media, and characterized by different buoyancy forces and velocity shears.
