The long-term goal of this project is develop the capability to predict the origin and fate of ocean water particles. We believe that achieving this goal follows from quantification of the roles of sub-mesoscale stirring and advective transport on ocean dynamics. Spatial scales of interest range from one kilometer to the Rossby deformation scale with corresponding time scales ranging from minutes to days. We rely on synoptic currents from high-frequency HF radar and output from data-assimilating numerical models for information on these scales.
