Abstract:

Four series of tracer experiments have been performed to parameterize an overwater-coastal transport and diffusion model. The experiment were carried out in the winter and summer near Ventura, CA and Pismo beach, CA. The tracer gas SF6 was released from the research ship RVAcania, which also collected and extensive amount of overwater meteorological data. This report contains descriptions of all experiments, the overwater meteorological data, and calculated meteorological parameters that are needed to characterize the transport and diffusion. Author
