- Dr. Fitz's adaption of Louis scheme for the surface layer (q, T, wind profile adjustments). Details are in slides 24-26 here. See comments in code on Jacobson's book.
- Dr. Fitz' adaption of Smith scheme for the surface layer (q, T, wind profile adjustments). Details are in a technical report here. See comments in code for more details.
- Dr. Fitz's adaption using power law for wind profileadjustments in the the surface layer
- Dr. Fitz's code based on neutral log wind profile to convert buoy winds to 10 meters . Assumes Charnock's relationship. Note that Charnock does not consider wave age (see Pan et al. 2008), and may not be valid in locally generated seas.
