Abstract:

Two long-term goals, one technical and one scientific motivate this project. The technical goal is to advance techniques of observing the upper ocean, in this case proving the utility of underwater gliders. The scientific goal is to understand the effects of mesoscale processes on larger scales such as the general circulation, and on smaller scales such as internal waves.
