Abstract:

The long-term objective is to understand the dynamics of the several physical processes that occur in the China Seas with the coordinated use of several tools, some of which already developed by ONR a numerical model, a Surface Velocity Program SVP drifters array and surface drifters are configured to gather enhanced data i.e. drifting thermistor chains ADOS-V fitted with profiling ADCPs. This research contributes to a more realistic prediction of this complex physical environment in area of strategic importance for PACFLEET operations.
