Abstract:

The long-term goals of our coastal research at Rutgers include 1 the implementation and testing of numerical models suitable for regional problems featuring irregular coastlines, steep topography, and strong coastaldeep ocean interaction 2 the use of these models to simulate the regional response of coastal currents, fronts and eddies in the California Current System 3 the simulation of storm-driven sediment transport and wind-driven upwelling in the Middle Atlantic Bight 4 the determination of the local balances of heat, mass and energy in these regions, including the patterns and methods of their exchange across the shelfdeep ocean boundary and 5 the application of these regional models to the study of coupled physicalbiogeochemical processes.
