CBLAST-LOW – The Coupled Boundary Layers, Air-Sea Transfer Experiment in Low Winds

Coupled atmospheric and oceanic boundary layer dynamics were investigated at low wind speeds where processes are driven and/or strongly modulated by thermal forcing. During the intensive operating periods in the summers of 2001 through 2003, investigators collected data near Martha’s Vineyard from the Air-Sea Interaction Tower (ASIT), aircraft flights, satellites, mooring arrays, and ship deployments. CBLAST-Low was funded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and included participants from the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the University of Washington, Oregon State, Columbia University, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, the Naval Postgraduate School, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Wisconsin, the University of Leeds, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
