A nomogram was prepared by [Golder, 1972. Boundary Layer Meteorology 3, 47–58] to compute the surface layer parameters in stable conditions. This note revisits the Golder’s curves and examines the methodology underlying their derivation in stable conditions. The inherent limitation in the methodology used for construction of Golder’s curves was also noticed by Trombetti et al. (1986). Surface layer fluxes computed using the parameters derived from modified curves are found to be closer to the turbulence measurements from CASES-99 experiment for stable conditions than those calculated from the [Golder, 1972. Boundary Layer Meteorology 3, 47–58] curves.
