Abstract:

The long term goals are 1 To understand the impact of complex coastal terrain andor coastline orientation on the structure of the coastal marine atmospheric boundary layer MABL 3 To study the effect on the atmospheric forcing of the coastal ocean, from the impact on the local flow induced by the coastal terrain, including possible feedback mechanisms. 2 To understand the internal turbulence structure of marine stratocumulus and how the presence of such clouds interact with the coastal flow.
