A four level shipboard system has been used to obtain profiles of mean wind, temperature, and humidity and to obtain distributions of temperature and wind speed fluctuations. These data have been used to characterize the marine boundary layer in the Los Angeles air basin and to obtain turbulence fluxes of momentum and sensible heat. The data show that the overwater mixing rates are much smaller than those observed on land, even though land influence can be seen as far as 30 miles from shore. Parameters have been obtained which can be used as inputs for the land-sea boundary descriptions involved in current air pollution analyses. (Author)
