Plain Language Summary: Stability functions based on Monin–Obukhov similarity theory for momentum and heat in the stable surface layer are derived from the Mellor–Yamada–Nakanishi– Niino (MYNN) scheme. The resulting “MYNN” stability functions can be approximated by linear functional forms. Momentum and heat fluxes obtained from the MYNN stability functions are compared with those from previously proposed stability functions and observational data of the Surface Heat Budget of the Arctic Ocean experiment (SHEBA).
