Details of Fixed platform-observed air-sea flux and surface wave in the South China Sea


Dataset identification

Title of datasetFixed platform-observed air-sea flux and surface wave in the South China Sea
Narrative summary of datasetThe air-sea flux and surfacw wave were observd in a fixed platform( 21º26.5' N, 111º23.5' E),  during the measurements from 6 February to 8 May 2012, the turbulence observed by the high-frequency ultrasonic anemometer (Gill R3-50) mounted at a height of 8 m, and waves were observed by the An acoustic wave and current (AWAC) sensor (Nortek, Rud, Norway).   The data provided are: Time:  YYYYMMDDHHNN; U8: Wind speed observed from ultrasonic anemometer fixed at 8 m height above the sea surface; Wind direction(from): Wind direction observed from ultrasonic anemometer; Wave direction(from): wave direction from acoustic wave and current (AWAC) sensor; Atmospheric Stability (z/L): Atmospheric Stability z/L, where z is height, and L is Obukhov length; wave age (cp/U8): Peak wave age ; τx/ρ: total wind stress  in longitudinal direction ; τy/ρ: total wind stress in lateral direction; τtx/ρ: turblent wind stress  in longitudinal direction ; τty/ρ: turblent wind stress in lateral direction; Cd(COARE): the drag coefficient computed by COARE 3.0 ; case: It represent the cases shown in figures 6~7 in the main text.Important Note: This submission has been initially submitted to SEA scieNtific Open data Edition (SEANOE) publication service and received the recorded DOI. The metadata elements have been further processed (refined) in EMODnet Ingestion Service in order to conform with the Data Submission Service specifications.
