Abstract
Empirically derived expressions describing the temperature- structure parameter, C(T)² , in terms of the stability parameter z/L or the Richardson number, Ri , over land were used to analyze data of mean humidity, temperature and wind speed and temperature fluctuations obtained by shipboard measurements over open ocean conditions. In general, there was little correlation between the spectral analyzed C(T)² values and z/L or Ri . It is recommended that a different approach be used to obtain C(T)² estimates and that z/L or Ri be modified to account for the anomalous temperature behavior found over a marine environment.
