Nyberg, A. ; Schmacke, E. (2011)

The eddy flux of momentum, sensible heat and latent heat has been computed from measured temperature, humidity and wind data from the aerological station Bromma 59° 21' N, 17° 57'E. The results obtained have been compared with similar computations for Larkhill 51° 11' N, 01° 48' W made by Priestley. A comparison has also been made with values obtained by using geostrophic winds kaken from synoptic charts. An estimation of the heat and momentum gained by eddy flux in the zone between 51° N and 59° N and north of 60° N has been made.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1951.tb00783.x
