Abstract:

Goals are to improve our understanding of radar backscatter and of thermal and microwave emission from the ocean surface, and of relevant physical processes including surface turbulence, mixing and convective heat transport. Objectives are to investigate the dynamics of turbulent convection near the ocean surface, and of breaking waves, including microbreakers, and the role of bubbles in turbulent mixing.
