Abstract:

The immediate scientific objectives of this research project are to develop practical, but still nearly optimal methods for the assimilation of data into coastal circulation models, and to apply these methods to time-series measurements from moorings and coastally-based high frequency HF standard and long range radars, satellite data SSH, SST, and hydrographic survey data e.g., from autonomous underwater vehicles, AUVs. An important additional scientific objective is to utilize data assimilation to study the physics of coastal ocean circulation processes.
