Abstract:

LONG TERM GOALS. Derive a new drag law and roughness length relationship for the coastal zone. OBJECTIVES. The primary objective is to isolate the influences of wave age andor fetch on the drag coefficient and surface roughness length. This includes examination of the influence of internal boundary layer development on heat and momentum fluxes in the coastal zone which can lead to large deviations from existing similarity theory. The second main objective to replace the wave age with more specific wave properties. The final objective is to provide the data sets to other groups including LES modeling groups.
