Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to understand the spatially and temporally varying circulation in the California Current System. One aspect of the circulation is a quantitative description of the spatial and temporal variability of currents and water properties, including the time-varying mean fields and their higher order statistics. Another aspect is the quantification of the momentum, vorticity and heat balances that govern that variability.
