Based on the numerical eddy resolving model, the structure of the atmospheric boundary layer in summer is studied with allowance for the diurnal behavior of the surface temperature. The model calculations are compared with the sodar data obtained at the Institute of Atmospheric Optics. It is shown that the model well represents convective processes, including the dynamics of the mixing layer thickness, amplitude of the vertical speed fluctuations, and the characteristic scales of atmospheric thermics.
