Abstract

The semiempirical equation of Wyngaard, Izumi, and Collins is combined with the bulk aerodynamic formulas to provide equations for the estimation of CT2 (the refractive-index temperature structure parameter) in the atmospheric boundary layer above the sea. The equations relate CT2 to easily measured quantities of average wind speed and air–sea temperature and moisture differences. Comparison with limited CT2 data obtained in the marine boundary layer suggests that the estimation equations are satisfactory.
