Abstract:
The Boundary Layer Studies Group (BLSG) of the Department of Meteorology, Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), deployed its 'Flux' buoy in Monterey Bay in July-November 2000 as part of the MUSE collaborative research project. The Flux buoy is a 2-m diameter disk buoy instrumented with sensors to measure mean environmental parameters, atmospheric turbulence quantities and spectral wave data. One-hour averaged mean meteorology data, bulk scaling parameters, turbulent fluxes and wave parameters were collected.
Purpose: These data were collected for oceanographic research.
