Summary
Abstract: A global air-sea heat and momentum flux climatology has been developed
at the Southampton Oceanography Centre (SOC) using fluxes obtained
from in situ reports within the Comprehensive Ocean Atmosphere Datset
1a (COADS) collected between 1980 and 1993. The primary difference
between this data set and others is that the reported meteorological
variables used to calculate the fluxes have been ... View entire text
