Abstract:

Interactions between the oceanic vertical shear field and the natural response of a recently developed expendable dissipation profiler XDP velocity measurements. A numerical model was developed to study this problem and two sources of errors were determined, the primary source being the shear induced torques at the instrument length scale.
