Ocean Surface Wave Optical Roughness: Analysis of Innovative Measurements

Lead PI: Dr. Christopher J. Zappa

Unit Affiliation: Ocean and Climate Physics, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)

February 2011 - September 2013
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The project will examine time-dependent oceanic radiance distribution in relation to dynamic surface boundary layer processes, construct a radiance-based surface boundary layer model, validate the model with field observations, possibly invert the model to yield surface boundary layer conditions.
