Observations and Analysis of the 10-11 June 1994 Coastally Trapped Disturbance
MetadataShow full item record
A coastally trapped disturbance (CTD), characterized by southerly flow at the surface on 10â 11 June 1994, was observed from the California Bight to Bodega Bay during a field experiment along the California coast. (Northâ south approximates the coast-parallel direction.) Data from a special observational network of wind profilers, radio acoustic sounding systems, special surface data, balloon ascents, and a research aircraft were used with satellite and synoptic data to explore both the CTD structure and the regional-scale changes before the event.
