Abstract

Tims variation of surface Fluxes of heat, moisture and momentum over a sea station (20:N89E) in the norm Bay of Bengal Mas been computed bv srofiie method lor the Period IK;:-, 25th Angus; 1990 using meteorological data of MOSTBL EX-90 from OR Y Sayarkniyii. The fluxes showed synoptic and uiurnal variations nnich ars rrarked during oppression (20th-21st August) comparée to their variation prior to and after tais period. Variations of heal and water vapour fluxes were in phase. Nigh- time fluxes are ralati.eiy high ccmpared to day time. Average ir.orner.tam transfer during depressor. two io three times large. Variations in Bowen ratio wers relatively large during day time. During depression, it varied between 0-2 in day lime and about 00 A., nignt and in the undisturbed period between 0-1 jnd 0-2 during day time and 0-2 and 025 at nigh:. The study shows that the assumption of the exchange coefficients normaiiy used ir. estimating the Ruxes by the buk Lu-rodyr.umic method is not appropriate because Cy/C- C and CH/C14.
