Our long-term goal is to quantify the interactions between small-scale biological and physical processes within the upper ocean. This project addresses that goal by providing support for a graduate student to assist in field work, sample analysis, and data processing and analysis within the parent project Assessing The Role Of Small-Scale Bio-Optical And Bio-Acoustical Distributions In Upper Ocean Biological And Optical Processes. Our objective is to train graduate students to think critically about scientific questions, and to develop the skills to address well-formed questions with the appropriate analytical tools. This ASSERT project permits Ms. Lisa Eisner, a graduate student in Biological Oceanography, to work with newly-developed, state-of-the-art bio-optical instrumentation, and provides the opportunity for her to participate in the growth of an important new research area within biological oceanography.
