Statistical Comparisons of Observed and ECMWF Modeled Open Ocean Surface Drag

Abstract

The surface-drag coe cients of two versions of the ECMWF's atmosphere-wave model are compared with those of uncoupled model versions and with those of Inertial-Dissipation measurements in the open ocean made by the RRS Discovery. It is found that the mean drag resulting from the latest coupled version is on average equal to that of the uncoupled version… (More)
