Abstract:

The long-terms goals of the research are to understand and parameterize the physics of air-sea interaction and the marine boundary layer over a wide spectrum of weather and ocean conditions. The main objectives of this effort are to study the air-sea interaction under the extreme conditions of cold-air outbreaks over the JapanEast Sea JES during winter. We are primarily interested in i the determination of boundary-layer structure ii the measurement of momentum, heat and water vapor latent heat air-sea fluxes and their spatial variability iii parameterization of these fluxes and iv model validation using observations.
