Abstract:

The long range scientific goals of the proposed research comprise 1 developing rigorous approaches to optimal combining different kinds of data images, CTD, HFR, glider, drifters , and possibly output of regional circulation models for accurate estimating the upper ocean velocity field, subsurface thermohaline structure, and mixing characteristics 2 constructing computationally efficient and robust estimation algorithms based on alternative parameterizations of uncertainty and comprehensive testing them on synthetic data 3 processing real data collected in coastal zones via new techniques
