The long-term goals of this research are to understand submesoscale processes causing horizontal dispersion of momentum and scalar quantities. We are interested in these processes in the open ocean as well as their role in mixing the coastal ocean. OBJECTIVES The specific objectives of the proposed research are to Participate with Lateral Mixing DRI investigators in planning a coordinated observational program, Conduct dye release experiments in conjunction with the observations planned by the other investigators to address the DRI hypotheses, and Analyze experimental data and report results in Lateral Mixing workshops, national scientific meetings and publications.
