Abstract:

The objective of the proposed project was to obtain measurements of low-level mean winds, temperatures and turbulent fluxes using an instrumented research aircraft in high wind cold air outbreak conditions over the Labrador Sea. Unfortunately it was not possible to obtain the high frequency turbuence measurements during the 1997 Labrador Sea experiment but 1 second flight level data was obtained . These data will be used for 1 numerical prediction model validation and data assimilation and 2 comparison to coincident oceanographic measurements of convective processes in Labrador Sea waters.
