Abstract:

The objectives of this program were quantifying flows and water properties, improving understanding of the dynamics of a bifurcation region, and establishing predictability of the three major currents in the region. The observational approach will have two major thrusts 1 quantifying the fluxes of mass, heat, and salt in the North Equatorial Current, the Kuroshio Current, and Mindanao Current, and 2 establishing Lagrangian patterns of flow.
