Abstract:

This report summarizes the mean values and turbulence parameters of meteorological measurements made during an experiment at Duck, NC, during Spet- Oct. 1986. The measurements were made to calculate wind stress in the nearshore area. Wind stress is a primary forcing function for nearshore waves and currents therefore, it is an important quantity in coastal engineering. The relationship between wind stress and surface currents, wind fields, wave fields, water depths, and air-sea temperature differences are not well understood. This experiment supplied data which is useful in studying these relationships and improving our capability to predict nearshore waves and currents for coastal engineering applications.
