Abstract:

The long-term goal of this program is to understand the processes of instability that generate turbulent mixing and drag, especially in the coastal ocean. Our ongoing studies of both the kinematics and dynamics of turbulence and small-scale physical phenomena in the ocean leading to turbulence emphasize observations, a program of continued sensor and instrumentation development, and interaction with turbulence modelers.
