LONG-TERM GOALS Develop and demonstrate in a collaborative Mid-Atlantic Bight test-bed a coupled observation and data assimilative modeling capability that contributes to our understanding of continental shelf processes, provides societal benefits, and is relocatable worldwide in both collaborative and noncollaborative environments. Our approach will leverage the complementary capabilities of academic, industry and government groups through NOPP-style partnerships to develop new satellite remote sensing algorithms, new HF radar hardware and processing software, and new autonomous underwater vehicles and sensors for subsurface adaptive sampling. We will use the new technologies to sustain a continuous long-term presence on the New Jersey Shelf with enhanced coverage during an ongoing series of scientific process studies that includes advanced data assimilation in coupled atmosphereocean physical, biological, biogeochemical, and sediment transport models.
