The objectives of the effort were to improve our understanding of the dynamics of Langmuir circulation, to examine its role in controlling the vertical fluxes of heat and momentum which determine the mean vertical structure of the upper ocean, and to make progress toward incorporating the effect of Langmuir circulation in models predicting how the ocean responds to atmospheric forcing.
