This study utilizes nested nonhydrostatic models embedded in hydrostatic models to simulate and predict the submesoscale dynamics of straits at high spatial and temporal resolutions. The goal of this work is to understand the submesoscale dynamics of straits and the impact of these dynamics on the throughflow in the straits. The Navy requires the ability to forecast features and circulations forced by these dynamics on scales that impact naval operations, i.e. kilometers to meters.
