Our long-term scientific goals are to understand the upper ocean dynamics, to understand the coupling between the ocean and atmosphere via air-sea fluxes, and to quantify the mechanisms of air sea interactions under extreme wind speeds. Our ultimate goal is to help develop improved parameterizations of air-sea fluxes in ocean-atmosphere models and parameterizations of small-scale processes in the upper ocean and the stratified interior.
