Wind stress and shear

Description 
Summary

There are wind stress tangential components (in units dyne/cm**2) at the Black Sea surface corresponding to the prognostic winds, calculated with use of the prognostic model of atmosphere dynamics ALADIN. The values of wind stress components are in grid points with horizontal spacing of 5 km in the Eastern part of the Black Sea. The wind stress components are calculated with one-hour time step within interval 16.05.2009 00:00 h - 20.05.2009 00:00 h.
