Abstract:

The primary objective was to assess mixing levels over a coastal regime, Monterey Bay, extending the scope of previous measurements that have been restricted to single lines or small domains. Secondarily, we sought to obtain enough data to compare mixing intensity, known to be high, with measurements on the New England shelf, which were low.
