Aircraft and SAR Observations of Barrier Jets in the Gulf of Alaska (SARJET)

Wyoming King Air Aircraft

Principal Investigators: Brian Colle and scientists at Johns Hopkins, Penn State and U Washington

Funded by NSF Mesoscale Dynamic Meteorology Program

Students Supported: Joseph Olson (Ph.D.)

Project Description: This field campaign is part of a larger project studying barrier jets in the Gulf of Alaska. The purposes of the parent project are as follows:

1) document the spatial and frequency climatology and morphology of barrier jets in Alaskan coastal waters

2) Study the dynamics of barrier jets using mesoscale modeling, high resolution synthetic aperture radar wind estimates and in situ measurements

3) Examine the impact of barrier jets on the coastal ocean

4) Transfer knowledge of barrier jets to the operational forecasting community.
