Abstract:

New, improved methods were evaluated for measuring air and sea temperature for the calculation of surface-based evaporation ducts at the boundary between the atmosphere and the ocean surface. Instrumentation to achieve these improvements was designed, fabricated, and tested. Final testing involved at-sea measurements with the two most promising instruments. One of these devices is recommended for operational Navy use while the other is well suited for research.
