AIR-SEA TRANSFER OF MOMENTUM, HEAT AND WATER DETERMINED FROM PROFILE MEASUREMENTS DURING BOMEX

One hundred forty-one simultaneous wind speed, temperature and humidity profiles measured during the Barbados Oceanographic and Meteorological Experiment (BOMEX) are analyzed. The observations were from heights 2-11 m above MSL and were made from the R/V FLIP, a research vessel specially designed to be stable at sea. The wind measurements are corrected for the interference of FLIP's hull with the air flow. (Modified author abstract)
