July 7, 1995 to July 14, 1995
Project Location: 
Lake Okeechobee, Florida
Project Description: 

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.
