Abstract:

Aerial multispectral photography and fixed point metering were used in the study of coastal currents at two sites in California. The system combining current meters, low-altitude photography and photodensitometric analysis of the suspended matter or tracer dyes is well suited to the study of both advective and diffusive processes in the ocean. Experiments were carried out in the vicinity of marine structures for the purpose of understanding their influence on coastal circulation.
