During the 1980's a wealth of data used to be pronounced from box and laboratory experiments on the way to validate andlor regulate a number of points of the outside layer Monin-Obukhov (M-O) similarity idea to be used over the ocean, and to introduce and try out new ideas with regards to excessive answer flux magnitudes and variabilities. for instance, info from a number of box experiments carried out at the North Sea, Lake Ontario, and the Atlantic experiments, between others, yielded info at the dependence of the flux coefficients on wave nation. In all box tasks, the standard standards for pleasurable M-O similarity have been utilized. The assumptions of stationarity and homogeneity used to be assumed to be proper over either small and big scales. additionally, the houses of the outer layer have been assumed to be "correlated" with houses of the skin layer. those assumptions quite often required that facts have been averaged for spatial footprints representing scales more than 25 km (or as a rule half-hour or longer for commonplace windspeeds). whereas progressively more information grew to become on hand through the years, and the know-how utilized used to be extra trustworthy, strong, and sturdy, the flux coefficients and different turbulent parameters nonetheless exhibited major unexplained scatter. because the scatter didn't exhibit adequate aid through the years to satisfy client wishes, even with more desirable expertise and heavy monetary investments, it is easy to merely finish that maybe using similarity concept contained too many simplifications whilst utilized to environments that have been extra complex than formerly thought.

The reader is referred to Stu11 (1987) for a review. 3 Physical Balances The fundamental form of the Navier-Stokes equations on a rotating system may be written as (after Shaw 1990): THEORY OF AIR-SEA MOMENTUM, HEAT AND GAS FLUXES 29 (2-6 ) wbere (2-7 ) wbere Q is tbe eartb's angular velocity, 1'\j is tbe unit vector along tbe axis of rotation, and tbe quantities, 1'\ and ~, are respectively tbe dynamic viscosity and tbe molecular viscosity for compressible flow. Tbe stress tensor is defined as: (2-8 ) Tbe continuity equation is: ap a -+-PUj=O at (2-9 ) aXj wbicb wben combined with (2-8) yields (2-10 ) Assuming incompressibility and invoking tbe Boussinesq approximation (Panofsky and Dutton, 1984), one may now write: (2-11 ) wbere v = 1'\/p is tbe kinematic viscosity.

Represents the rate of change of TKE due to advection. Tbe second term represents shear production. Tbe third term is the flux divergence of TKE, while the following term is the divergence of pressure flux. s. is TKE production or loss due to buoyancy, and the last term is the loss of TKE due to viscosity. Equations for other higher order moments have been derived and reported elsewhere. Tbe reader is referred to Sorbjan (1989) for a complete treatment. 5 Similarity theory Most equations in the previous two sections cannot readily be solved, due either to the presence of highly nonlinear terms or the requirement for enormous in-situ data bases.
