Abstract:

Oceanic frontal activity in the western Alboran Sea of the Mediterranean Sea was investigated to evaluate spatial and temporal variability. Subsurface features were compared with DMSP sensed sea surface temperature to estimate the feasibility of determining frontal location from DMSP photography. Low frequency sound propagation across the front was modeled to evaluate the effect of the frontal system on propagation loss.
