Abstract:

The bulk of the activities conducted under this contract consisted of basic research on ocean flow dynamics as it pertains to the prediction of ocean motions. Results from the research conducted during this period were published in refereed scientific literature. The following articles are included 1 Evolution of a warm-core ring in the Gulf of Mexico Lagrangian observations 2 Fractal drifter trajectories in the Kuroshio Extension 3 Observed and simulated kinematic properties of loop current rings and 4 Dynamics of warm- core mesoscale eddies.
