Abstract:

The long-term goal of the project is to meet the goal of ONR DRI NLIW, which is to achieve the basic science understanding that leads to a predictive capability that will be able to tell when and where non-linear internal waves will occur and what effects they will have on the hydrodynamic and acoustic environment. This project focuses on the use of remotely sensed variables, together with models, that can reproduce and predict the generation and structure of these waves, their evolution during propagation, and the processes controlling dissipation.
