Abstract
Recently several investigators proposed an extension of the Navy Aerosol Model (NAM) based on analysis of an extensive series of measurements at the Irish Atlantic Coast and at the French Mediterranean Coast. This work extends NAM by use of a similar analysis using data collected at three different Middle East Coastal areas: the Negev Desert (Eilat) Red Sea Coast, the Sea of Galilee (Tiberias) Coast, and the Mediterranean (Haifa) Coast. Results of the aerosol size distribution are compared with those obtained through measurements carried out over the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Coasts. An analysis of these different results allows a better understanding of the similarities and differences between different coastal and open ocean zones. Parameterization is introduced. The aerosol particle concentrations and their dependences on wind speed for these coastal zones are analyzed and discussed.
