Abstract:

Our long-term goals are 1 to determine the spatial and temporal scales of thin layers, 2 to identify the processes responsible for the formation, maintenance and dissipation of vertically thin layers, and 3 to develop the capability to predict thin layer formation and presence in the sea. The central focus of our research is to investigate the spatial and temporal scales of thin layers, the relationship between physical processes from the mesoscale to the microscale and thin layers. With the overarching goal of ultimately determining how many physical variables are required to predict the occurrence of thin layers in the sea.
