Abstract:

The long-term goal is to improve our understanding of heat and moisture exchange in the tropics through direct estimates of the fluxes and their related mean variables. The flux of heat across the coupled boundary layers is primarily accomplished by small-scale processes that are parameterized in numerical models. The ultimate goal is to improve the Navy s predictive capabilities in the tropics through an improved understanding of the processes driving the Madden-Julian Oscillation MJO.
