Abstract

The fluxes of heat and moisture from sea to air often produce effects which do provide some means of estimating these fluxes. The most obvious products of such fluxes are clouds, the growth of the convective boundary layer, and the warming and moistening of that layer. Such effects are especially dramatic in the case of cold air outbreaks over warm waters along the east coasts of Asia and North America. There the effects are clearly manifested in the form of cloud streets. The sensible and latent heating of the atmosphere is related to the so-called cloud-free path or CFP (i. e. the downwind distance offshore at which clouds first form). (JPB).
