Abstract:

Efforts in the MPL Ocean Dynamics program during 1993-96 focused in three areas. First was the study of fine scale shear and strain as measured by profiling CDTs and Doppler sonar during the SWAPP experiment. A second effort fielded an oceanographic contribution to the 1993-94 SIMI experiment in the Beaufort Sea. Analysis of these data are presently in an advanced state. Finally, we are completing analysis of wavenumber-frequency spectra of fine scale shear from geographic sites around the world. The goal is to quantify variation of spectral form as a function of overall energy level and latitude.
