We propose a research program to capture and study intraseasonal phenomena by observing across the equator with measurement stations at eastern atolls of Seychelles and Sri Lanka and Singapore, spanning time scales from minutes to months.
The aim is to:
- capture eastward and northeastward propagating disturbances over one year using profiles of moisture and velocity
- observe entrainment of upper air into the marine boundary layer using LiDAR and ground (tower) based measurements
- delineate the role of small-scale atmospheric processes in determining air-sea property exchanges
