Abstract

Conventional atmospheric dispersion and air quality models require that the wind field be known with a higher resolution than is currently available from field monitoring stations in most coastal areas. In this paper, a numerical model is developed to predict the wind flow field during the land-sea breeze. The form and assumptions and method of solution of the model are described. The model output is compared to atmospheric data taken from a field study conducted in the Santa Barbara Channel and Ventura-Oxnard plain in southern California.
