Abstract The non‐linear normal mode initialization technique used in shallow water equation models by Baer (1977) and Machenhauer (1977) is now applied to a full baroclinic primitive equations forecast model. The initialization procedure is shown to be capable of completely removing high...
Abstract Winter operation of an acoustic sounder at Calgary, Alberta, has led to some unique observations during Chinook periods. Acoustic backscatter records obtained in these periods reveal an identifiable pattern of events in the atmospheric boundary layer. Descending turbulent structures are...
Abstract It is shown that inertial oscillations of significant magnitude can be generated by geostrophic adjustment in a shallow sea. Evidence of them in current‐meter data from the Gulf of St Lawrence is presented. The geostrophically unbalanced state required for the adjustment process is...
Abstract Airborne and ground‐based measurements of incoming and outgoing fluxes of solar radiation were conducted over Hamilton during cloudless periods in July 1973. The urban atmospheric constituents were sufficient to attenuate an extra 10 percent of incoming solar radiation compared to rural...
Abstract Seven months of meterological data taken from a 10‐m discus buoy moored on the continental shelf off Nova Scotia were quantitatively as good as those from a nearby Atmospheric Environment Service weather station. The open sea, winter conditions constituted the most severe test to date...
