Abstract : Formulas and graphs are given by which the turbulent sensible and latent heat transfer from water surface to the air can be determined from the measurements of the weather ships. From the observational data of seven North Atlantic weather ships, the heat fluxes have been calculated for four seasons and as functions of wind speed and direction. The values are much larger than the heat fluxes derived by other authors. (Author)
