Abstract:

The principal long-term goals of this project are to provide In concert with related projects, an improved understanding of vertical turbulent mixing and it consequences in stratified estuarine flows. Improved methods for determination of the suspended particulate matter SPM concentration and transport fields from acoustic and optical backscatter measurements. The past year s work focused on the second goal, finding improved methods for determination of the SPM concentration and transport fields from acoustic and optical backscatter measurements, given appropriate calibration data. As a part of this effort, we have used continuous wavelet transform methods to determine the importance of tidal and non-tidal mechanisms in horizontal SPM transport.
