Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Response Experiment

The Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere (TOGA) Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Response Experiment (COARE) has as its goal an improved understanding of the role of the western Pacific Ocean warm water pool in the mean and transient state of the tropical ocean/global atmosphere system. Project objectives: 1) The principal processes responsible for the coupling of the ocean and the atmosphere in the western-Pacific Ocean warm-pool system; 2) The principal atmospheric processes that organize convection in the warm-pool region; 3) The oceanic response to combined buoyancy and wind stress forcing in the western Pacific Ocean warm-pool region; and 4) The multiple-scale interactions that extend the oceanic and atmospheric influence of the western Pacific Ocean warm-pool system to other regions and vice-versa. NOTE: The data from all radiosonde stations that utilized Vaisala radiosondes are in the process of being replaced with versions corrected for the humidity bias.
