Abstract:

An expedition to Aruba was organized during February-March of 1965 in order to study air-sea interaction processes around a flat island across the direction of the trade winds. The report contains an outline of the work carried out at Aruba, as well as a comparative study of stress, wind and wave developments at different distances from a lee shore, and an analysis of aircraft observations in and below the trade wind inversion. The report also provides a record of about thirty double theodolite balloon ascents and extensive tables of wind velocities at two levels, surface roughness, friction velocity and drag coefficients at different distances from the shore profiles of temperature, mixing ratio and equivalent potential temperature across the island and the surrounding waters are also shown.
