Figure 2. Mean surface latent heat flux (W/m2) from March 1 to April 10, 1993, as a function of longitude between 155oE and 140oW. The observations and model output have been averaged between 10oN and 10oS. The solid line is for CCM3 output collocated with the TOGA TAO moorings, and dotted lines show the RMS range of the model flux. The dashed line is for the TAO buoy observations, and the dash-dotted lines indicate the RMS range of the buoy fluxes.
