dc.description.abstractAn instrumented C-130 aircraft flew over water around Point Sur, California, on 17 June 1996 under strong northwest wind conditions and a strong marine inversion. Patterns were flown from 30- to 1200-m elevation and up to 120 km offshore. Nearshore, marine air accelerated past Point Sur, reaching a surface maximum of 17 m s21 in the lee. Winds measured over water in and above the marine layer were alongshore with no significant cross-shore flow.en_US
