The primary objectives of this observational program are to quantify 1 the generation of NLIWs and internal tides in the vicinity of Luzon Strait, 2 the energy flux of NLIWs and internal tides into the Pacific Ocean and South China Sea SCS, 3 the effects of the Kuroshio on the generation and propagation of NLIWs and internal tides, 4 the seasonal variation of NLIWs and internal tides, and 5 to study other small-scale processes, e.g., hydraulics and instabilities along internal tidal beams and at the Kuroshio front.
