Abstract:

We plan to collaborate with other DRI participants to better evaluate and understand the dynamics seen in observations and model results within the Philippine Archipelago, a strategic region with numerous straits. Objectives for our DRI participation are 1 high resolution simulations with and without tides with and without data assimilation which provide a larger scale context for the observations, 2 model data comparisons with the measurements, 3 studies of observational representativeness in measuring transports through straits, 4 investigation of non-tidal and tidal barotropic and internal influences on specific sub-regions of interest, especially where measurements are available, and 5 provide boundary conditions for nested models.
