Mathematically derived wind speed profiles exhibit displacement to lower velocities rather than profile slope changes under the influence of rainfall. Deutscher Wetterdienst, Offenbach, F. Smith, The air density correction to eddy flux measurements. Boundarylaver Met. Air density fluctuations, such as temperature fluctuations associated with a heat flux, produce small mean vertical wind velocities which necessitate significant corrections to eddy flux measurements of passive scalars whose average concentrations are very large compared to eddy-flux-associated concentration fluctuations.

Measurement of pressure at the wavy gas-liquid interface. Gas pressure variations as a function of wave phase are monitored at the liquid surface by a new method involving a wave-following pressure probe and a mechanism to minimize extraneous pressure fluctuations.

Interactions of surface and thermal waves in the averaged heat transfer are discussed. Friehe and C. Gibson, Sea surface stress measurements. It is suggested that the inertial dissipation estimates are less reliable due to an enhancement of local isotropv in the wind velocity field by the presence of surface waves.

Hawaiian winter rainfall related to Pacific sea surface temperature. Although a highly significant relationship between Hawaiian winter rainfall and North Pacific sea surface temperature was found for the period , predictability for was very low, possibly due to 'artificial predictability' or changes in physical influences.

Analyses of the GATE Phase Ill radiative divergence estimates are discussed and the profiles indicate less upper tropospheric radiative divergence but more middle level divergence than expected from climatological estimates. The remarkably stable daytime total tropospheric divergence can be used to infer maritime tropical surface energy budgets from satellite data.

Air which contains less water vapour than the maximum possible amount is said to be unsaturated. Air which is unsaturated is often called dry air although it contains some water vapour. If unsaturated air is cooled sufficiently it will become saturated. Further cooling will result in the excess water vapour being condensed into the liquid or solid state visible water droplets or ice crystals.

Dew point The temperature to which unsaturated air must be cooled to become saturated is the dew point.

So long as air remains unsaturated and the amount of water vapour remains constant, the dew point will also remain constant although the air temperature changes. If air is saturated its temperature is its dew point. It is expressed as a percentage. Exact values are of little or no concern to the mariner but the shape of the curve is of immense importance and this will become apparent in later chapters.

Thus, the higher the air temperature the greater the saturation value of absolute humidity. The dew point is then 20C. The dew point is constant through any changes of temperature above 20C.

During such cooling below 20C, the dew point will, at all stages, be equal to the existing air temperature. The higher the initial dew point the greater the amount of water vapour condensed.

Most of these particles are hygroscopic that is, they tend to attract and absorb moisture. They are the nuclei onto which water vapour condenses, forming visible water droplets cloud or fog. Without their presence any condensation would be highly improbable. They are most abundant in the levels near the surface, from whence they are carried upwards to higher levels by convection.

In those industrial areas where there is a very high degree of smoke pollution, fog can sometimes form in falling temperatures a little before the dew point has been reached. Explain why this is so. Explain why.

Solar radiation and temperature 8 Describe the greenhouse effect on the Earths atmosphere. It is important that a seafarer should be able to recognise the main cloud types because of their bearing upon existing and future weather; he or she does not need to be a weather forecaster but the arrival of a particular type of cloud may confirm the timing of a particular forecast or may give warning of an unexpected weather change.

This can be particularly useful when weather forecasts are for any reason unobtainable. A seafarer also needs to be able to recognise and name cloud types for inclusion in weather reports which are transmitted to a meteorological service. The cloud formation in any locality is an important feature of most weather situations and provides the meteorologist with valuable information when preparing a forecast.

Summary of cloud types The names and descriptions of the various cloud types have been agreed internationally by the World Meteorological Organisation. The earliest cloud classification, prepared in , contained five types derived from Latin words cirrus meaning thread , cumulus heap , stratus layer , nimbus grey rain cloud and fractus broken.

The present classification is an amplification and combination of these. Briefly, cirrus clouds are of a feathery or fibrous appear- ance; cumulus are cauliflower shaped above with a flattish base; stratus clouds form a more or less shapeless or homogenous layer or sheet; nimbus clouds have a uniform dark grey and threatening appearance, often with precipitation or virga trailing beneath.

Cloud types are further divided into three groups based upon their height above the observer: high, medium and low. Description of cloud types see photos 1 to 16 Stratus St A more or less continuous layer or sheet of cloud, similar in appearance to fog but rarely touching the ground except in the case of high land.

When it does touch the ground it is indistinguishable from fog.Boundary-laver Met. So long as air remains unsaturated and the amount of water vapour remains constant, the dew point will also remain constant although the air temperature changes. They are often arranged in lines or groups orientated in one or two directions.
