Abstract:

The long-term goal is to understand the mechanisms that produce spatial variability in ocean surface skin temperature over a wide range of scales under low wind conditions. The first objective is to use an airborne infrared imager to produce both overview maps and high-resolution time series of thermal variability over the CBLAST study area. The second objective is to combine these data with measurements by other investigators to determine the extent to which horizontal variability in surface temperature is related to atmospheric and sub-surface phenomena.
