Abstract:

The study is a further evaluation of the system of equations employed currently for simulating the atmospheric friction layer. Five sets of data, each 12 hr in length, were collected in August, 1969, at Dugway Proving Ground, Utah. Preliminary solutions for these sets of data were included in Technical Reports ECOM-0280-3, dated December, 1969, and ECOM-0280-4, dated September , 1970. Subsequent to obtaining these solutions, the data were re-evaluated for each of the cases. After re-evaluation, solutions of the equation system for the sets of data were obtained again. The results of these solutions are included in this report, which appears in two volumes. Volume I contains solutions for five sets of data collected at Dugway. Volume II contains solutions for Cases I- A through VIII of the Dallas Tower Network Data, incorporating a modified form of the exchange coefficient derived from Deacons wind hypothesis and miscellaneous solutions of the system of equations for a wide range of meteorological conditions.
