Abstract:

The long-term goal of my research is to develop, verify, and apply numerical ocean prediction models to eastern boundary coastal regions in order to improve our scientific understanding of the structure and dynamics of such regions. The broad objective of this research is to aid in the development of a reliable modeling capability for eastern boundary current regions. The specific objectives are 1 to carry out and verify multi-year numerical model hindcasts of the California Current, and 2 to compare these hindcasts with those being conducted by other groups within the Navy and University communities.
