New knowledge

The scientific results of this project are related to acquiring new detailed knowledge for the vertical structure of the coastal ABL of the Bulgarian Black sea during different weather conditions (wind flow from different direction, calm weather, and various meteorological phenomena), on one hand through data measurements from modern GBRS instrument for acoustic sounding of the atmosphere and, on the other hand, through numerical mesometeorological modeling.

The proposed project methods and approaches will contribute to filling the gaps of research in Bulgaria on the vertical structure of the ABL in a coastal area. The implementation of the project and obtained results will increase the capacity of CAWRI-BAS and the competence of the postdoctoral fellow and will assisting his growth as an established scientist.

The obtained results could be used as a basis for further research or for applying similar approaches to different data sets. The sodar data could be used for validation of other numerical models and ABL parameterizations. The results could be applied in a more detailed survey of regional climate, in studies associated with marine meteorology, in surveys in the field of renewable energy from wind turbines, for planning and building technological installations in the region, in ecological assessments and environmental impact assessments, in development of early warning systems for hazardous meteorological phenomena, flight and navigation safety and other economic and social activities, depending on wind field and its forecast in particular coastal events.
