Abstract
    One considers here the time evolution of the oceanic surface boundary layer in relation with the synoptic variability of atmospheric processes. Attention is restricted to situations where the major responsability for the short-period variability of the vertical structure of the surface boundary layer lies on the local thermal and dynamic interactions between the atmosphere and the ocean and on the internal thermocline - supported transfer processes. Emphasis is laid on theoretical and experimental results which can be interpreted by means of simple one-dimensional vertical mixing models.
