COARE-Met Flux Algorithm

Fortran routines have been developed to calculate bulk fluxes for the COARE region. Files available through this page are those developed by the air-sea fluxes science group of the TOGA COARE project.

Many investigators have contributed to authoring the TOGA COARE algorithms for calculating momentum, heat, and moisture fluxes.

Version 2.5b now available! Last Update to Flux Routines: 15 Nov 1999
Fortran code was updated to reflect changes made after May 1997 Flux workshop in Boulder, CO
