Abstract:

A preliminary analysis and listing is given of micrometeorological data obtained from aircraft measurements. Thirteen flights were made on ten different days from 26 November 1978 to 13 December 1978. The typical flight duration was approximately three hours. Three types of flight pattern were employed for specific environmental characterization low-level, constant altitude runs for sea surface temperature maps, spiral ascents and descents for surface-to-altitude profiles, and ladder profiles obtained from level runs of two minutes duration at successively increasing altitudes for marine boundary layer turbulence structure. A printout of the primary variables of interest for each flight is presented as a time series 32 second average. A Similar printout for each ladder profile a series of two minute averages at constant altitude is also presented.
