Abstract: Various models exist that calculate evaporation duct height in terms of directly measureable meteorological parameters in the surface layer over the sea-surface. One of these models (Paulus-Jeske model) is a straightforward model employing certain empirical formulae, and the other (Babin-Young-Carton model) an exhaustive model employing Monin-Obukhov similarity theory. In this paper, a comparison is made between these two models for ‘a test data set’ off the coast of California and sample marine data over the Arabian sea and Bay of Bengal. The applications of these two models to compute evaporation duct heights over the warm tropical oceans are highlighted.
