Abstract : This report surveys recent progress in research on modeling and inference for transient tracers on oceanic flows. The survey covers in some detail the contents of five technical reports on various aspects of this research, including a Markov process for mass transport and estimation functions for estimating flow coefficients, dissipation rates, and birth rates from chronicles of transient tracers. The details include theoretical results of independent interest that support applications to inference from tracer data.
