First results from the 2009 SOPRAN active thermography pilot experiment in the Baltic Sea (bibtex)
by Leila Nagel, Uwe Schimpf, Bernd Jähne
Abstract:
To improve the parametrization of the transfer velocities a novel active thermography system was developed. At the end of SOPRAN 1 it has been deployed in a pilot experiment at the bow of the research vessel FS Alkor in the Baltic sea. A periodically varying heat flux is applied by a CO2-laser. The transfer velocity is estimated by the amplitude damping and phase shift of the temperature signal in the Fourier domain, gained from the infrared images of the water surface. First results are shown. The system will be used in the second phase of the SOPRAN project on a regular base. Together with eddy covariance measurements deployed from FINO 2, a significant improvement of the parametrization of the heat an gas transfer velocities can be expected.
