Abstract:

Our long term goals are to improve parameterization of surface fluxes in the coastal zone in the presence of wave growth, shoaling, and internal boundary layer development. These goals include improving the present form of similarity theory used by models to predict surface fluxes and stress over water surfaces, and documenting development of internal boundary layers in the coastal zone that are currently not modelled correctly, particularly in cases of flow of warm air over colder water
