Abstract

The penetration of the land breeze was detected at about 2130 JST, and the advance speed of the land breeze front was estimated to be about 2.4 m s-1. The shape of land breeze head was similar to that of a sea breeze head reported by Simpson et al. (1977). The top height of the land breeze head was 400 m and the depth of the land breeze layer proper was about 200 m. A closed circulation pattern was detected inside the land breeze head. Large velocity fluctuations were observed at the leading edge of the head and the boundary of the large turbulence zone showed a wavy pattern behind the land breeze head. -from Authors
