Parameterization of overwater horizontal wind variability
Schacher, G. E. (Gordon Everett)
MetadataShow full item record
Data from four overwater diffusion experiments have been analyzed to parameterize the overwater horizontal wind variability. The parameterization involves three production mechanisms: shear, buoyancy, and a larger scale process loosely referred to as mesoscale. All three processes have been parameterized for averaging times from 1 min to 1 hour. The variability has also been parameterized in term of the surface layer stability, which we find to be an insufficient parameter. The results are applicable to the overwater coastal regime.
