Abstract:

The purpose of the study has been a To investigate the processes involved in the mesoscale feedback process and effects of the feedback on the lower layers of the atmosphere b to investigate the response of surface air to sea-surface properties c to determine the range of the coastal influence and the effects of coastal fronts on the surface layers in the atmosphere d to investigate the possibility of recognizing oceanic frontal effects with routine ship observations and e to look into the accounting of feedback in numerical models.
