Estimation of fluxes from wind and temperature profiles in the marine atmospheric surface boundary layer
Daytime hourly measurements on wind profile at a station 7°40'N, 78°26' 131, and wind and temperature profiles at 12°35' N, 80°48'E, were made in the 3-6 m layer above sea surface, using sensors fitted at six levels on a 3,2 m mast which was projected forward of the bow of the research vessel “R.V. Gaveshoni” during her cruise in May 1983 when she was halted at these stations, on 16 and 20 May respectively, for observations.
Drag coefficient was estimated from wind profiles on 16th, Wind profiles on 20th were corrected for diabetic effects using the corresponding temperature profiles and the estimated drag coefficient, momentum and sensible heat flux are presented.
