A formulation to determine the evaporation duct height in the sea surface boundary layer is presented. This formulation is based upon the theory of similarity of Monin Obukhov by using analytical solutions currently used in the field of numerical weather prediction. The proposed solution is simple, coherent with the surface boundary layer parameterization used in the Meteo France and European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts weather prediction models and gives good results when compared to more traditional methods.
