Abstract:

The long-term goal is to understand the dynamics of physical oceanographic circulation processes on continental shelves and slopes with emphasis on the mechanisms involved in across-shelf transport. The objective is to apply numerical circulation models to process studies and to simulations of continental shelf and slope flow fields, including the inner shelf region and the nearshore surf zone, to help achieve understanding of the flow dynamics.
