Abstract:

The long-term goal is to better understand, and thus be able to better predict, the transport of different constituents and airmass properties in the marine atmospheric boundary MBL layer and between the MBL and the nearcoast land. This transport may in many cases be due to mesoscale flow systems at locations along mountainous coastlines or to boundary layer processes at the coast. The transported constituents may be properties of the marine boundary layer air, e.g. humidity, air pollution or aerosols the latter both of natural and man-made origin. In particular I am interested in the cross-coast mixing potential. By this I mean the probability of finding properties from the marine environment at inland locations or matter released over the continent ending up in the marine environment.
