Oceanic latent heat flux from satellite data
This thesis presents a new method of estimating ocean latent heat flux (LHF) using satellite data. The surface layer equations derived from Monin-Obukhov similarity theory are closed with empirical parameterizations, and patched to a mixed layer model yielding a two-layer PBL model. This is the first proof that such a model ...
