Summary This is a joint proposal with the Naval Research Laboratory, Monterey (NRL). NRL PI (Dr. Shouping Wang) has submitted the same proposal with separate funding request to ONR. We propose a three year research plan for follow-up of the CBLAST project. The overall objectives continue to be to understand air-sea interaction and improve the surface flux and boundary layer parameterizations in the Coupled Ocean/Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System (COAMPS). We particularly focus on three issues: impact of SST variability in the contest of the coupled atmospheric-oceanic boundary layers; improvements in the surface and boundary layer parameterizations with emphasis on the stable and fog conditions; and evaluation and transition of new parameterizations in COAMPS.
