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.

Coastally trapped disturbances along the U.S. west coast: synoptic and mesoscale analysis of 9-12 June 1994 Oosterling, Paul S. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1995);Synoptic and mesoscale analyses were made for a coastally trapped disturbance along the central California coast that occurred on 9 - 12 June 1994. Hourly sea-level pressure analyses were constructed using a Multi-Quadric ...
Sopko, Steven P. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-12);During the warm season (April-September), the California coast is under the influence of persistent northwesterly flow. Periodically, this flow is replaced by a narrow band of southerly winds along the coast. The transition ...
