Abstract:

The objectives of this effort are to examine The transitions of inherent optical properties across coastalopen ocean boundaries and their effect on apparent optical characteristics of the water column. The role of physical processes river inflow, upwelling, coastal filaments, and frontal processes in the production, distribution and flux of optical properties between the coastal and the offshore zones. The relationship between the surface expression of three-dimensional ocean processes and the interior processes.
