Abstract:

The Autonomous Ocean Sampling Networks AOSN program is an ambitious and ongoing ONR effort to combine new robotic vehicles and sampling methodologies with advanced ocean models to improve our ability to observe and predict the physical and biological state of the ocean. The AOSN-II field program was performed in Monterey Bay from mid-July to early September 2003. More than 20 autonomous underwater vehicles and a variety of in-situ and remote instrument systems were used to observe the evolution of wind-forced coastal upwelling processes and their biological consequences. The AOSN-II program received a great deal of national and international attention, and the accomplishments of the AOSN-II team continue to impact the development of regional observing strategies and systems including the NSF OOI. This award enabled broad dissemination of results from the AOSN-II field experiment via a special volume of Deep-Sea Research II.
