This work is devoted to the detection of non-equilibrium turbulence states in atmospheric turbulence. The non-equilibrium scaling contradicts the classical Richardson-Kolmogorov cascade picture and many turbulence models do not account for it. The existence of such scaling has been discovered in various laboratory experiments. We show here that non-equilibrium states are also present in the stratocumulus-topped boundary layers, which indicates the presence rapidly changing external conditions.
