Abstract : The objective's of this project are (1) to elucidate the effect of sea surface conditions on the vertical flux of heat and momentum; and (2) to establish relationships between a variable irradiation, heat flux and land surface temperatures. Some research programs, related to the present project, are described. Scientists planning to take part in the forthcoming Aruba expedition are listed. New technical developments under the contract, modifications or improvements of existing equipment and the thorough testing program which occupied most of our attention are described. (Author)
