Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to develop novel oceanographic instrumentation to address fundamental questions in ocean optics. The primary goal of this project is to develop a holographic instrument capable of imaging and characterizing natural i.e. undisturbed particle fields in the ocean. The long-term science goal is to understand the link between suspended particles and the bulk scattering properties of natural waters. We believe in-situ digital holographic microscopy, recently developed and employed for both fluid dynamics and biological studies, has the capability to obtain critical data relevant to this goal.
