Abstract:

This is part of a collaborative program Optimal Deployment of Drifting Acoustic Sensors, ODDAS, which involves academic, private sector, and Navy scientists. The long-term goal of ODDAS is to develop strategies for the deployment of drifting sensors that maximize the amount of environmental information collected with the fewest sensors. The primary long-term goal of our component is to quantify oceanic submesoscale stirring and advective transport processes and to assess their roles in the deployment strategies. The secondary goal is to develop novel and quantitative assessments of the ability of predictive models and real-time observations to determine the movement of sensors and the location of material boundaries or advective pathways in the ocean.
