LABEX 95 (LAke Breeze EXperiment)
Three ISS were deployed around Lake Okeechobee in southern Florida in
support of the LABEX. The experiment was designed by investigators
at Iowa State University to examine boundary layer circulations and
thermodynamic changes induced by lakes of small to moderate size.
The ISS installations provided surface data, wind and virtual
temperature profiles, and balloon-borne CLASS soundings. Approximately
20 CLASS soundings were taken during this one week experiment.
Summary of Scientific Objectives
The prime goal of the Lake Breeze Experiment was to provide
initial observational documentation of lake breeze circulations
around lakes of small-to-moderate size (several km to tens of
km). The data obtained will be used to determine the interrelationship
between the breeze intensity, depth, onshore penetration, and
the lake horizontal scale and horizontal thermal contrast.
Project results will also be used to initialize and validate
numerical model simulations.
