Mesoscale Coastally - Trapped Response To Synoptic Variability
Nuss, Wendell A.
MetadataShow full item record
The objectives of this project are to document the mesoscale structure of coastally-trapped phenomena along the U.S. West Coast, establish the relationship between the synoptic-scale structure and the onset of coastally-trapped disturbances, determine the sensitivity of coastally-trapped phenomena to synoptic-scale variability, and to establish forecast criteria for predicting coastally-trapped disturbances. This work is supported entirely by the Office of Naval Research Marine Meteorology program through the Coastal Meteorology Accelerated Research Initiative.

Marine fog development along the west coast during 1973 using transient ship and coastal station observations. Evermann, George Stephen (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1976-09); NPS-68Lr76091Using transient ship observations, a hypothetical five phase Marine Fog Development (MFD) Model was applied to four actual cases of summer marine fog during 1973 along the central California coast. The MFD Model incorporates ...
