Abstract:

To provide observations and analysis of the stratification and shear at sub-meso to meso-scales and to regional scales of the various streams that feed into and through the Philippine Archipelago complex to determine their relationship to the regional ocean and monsoon forcing. These contribute to the Characterization and Modeling of Archipelago Strait Dynamics DRI PhilEx goal to enhance our understanding of the oceanographic processes and features arising in and around straits, and improve our capability to predict the inherent spatial and temporal variability of these regions using models and advanced data assimilation techniques.
