Paper Abstract

Shipboard measurements of small scale temperature and velocity fluctuations have been accomplished to determine optical wave propagation properties of the marine boundary layer. Measurements were recorded for ocean conditions in Monterey Bay and in the confines of the Pacific Missile Range. Turbulence parameters measured were the temperature structure function parameter, CT2, and rate of dissipation of turbulent kinetic energy, E. There is satisfactory agreement with overland predictions for the variation of these parameters with height.
