Abstract:

Schemes for assessing atmospheric stability are described and a modification to the Pasquill scheme to parameterize it for the overwater regime is developed. The various schemes are compared to measured values of the wind direction standard deviation. The results are location specific, applying only to the California channel islands area. Author
