Abstract: Sea breeze at Visakhapatnamis influenced by the unique combination of topographic meteorological and oceanographic features To characterize the main features of sea breeze as it penetrates inland, two monostatic acoustic sounders have been operated simultaneousliy in May 1983 one at the University site about 1 km away from the coastline and other at the airport meteorological observatory about 11 km west inland. From the sounder records of the two sites and the supporting meteorological data it has been observed that the sea breeze at the two locations differs considerably in respect of its onset, duration, depth and thermal turbulence distribution. This marked variability is attributed to the peculiar orography of the locale.
