Observational results from shipboard measurements of temperature fluctuations, and mean wind, temperature, and humidity, are compared with existing expressions for the surface flux and height dependence of (C sub T) squared. Surface flux estimates are obtained from bulk aerodynamic formulae. Temperature fluctuation data are selected to minimize a salt-contamination effect which causes increases in temperature variance. Predictions for (C sub T) squared based on surface flux scaling agree within 20%, except for near neutral and large unstable conditions where the disagreement can be attributed to measurement problems
