Abstract:

The design, construction and calibration of suitable instrumentation for measuring temperature fluctuations within a few centimeters of the sea surface, surface wave variations, and wind velocity are discussed. Small bead-in-glass thermistors mounted at 2.5 and 5 centimeters above the water surface were used to measure temperature variations under varying wind conditions and spectral densities computed on a digital computer. Spectra, co-spectra and coherence squares from 0 to 5 Hz are presented. Author
