Abstract:

The flux of heat and water vapor was measured by several techniques during February 1969 while the surface water south of France was sinking to the bottom. These measurements show that the sea loses more than 300 calsq cmday and more than 0.5gmsq cmday of water during the winter. The flow patterns, turbulence, and exchanges of heat, water vapor and momentum of the mistral winds have been studied through the use of aircraft, ship, buoy, and radiosonde observations. Author
