Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to observe and understand the temporal and spatial variability of the upper ocean and to identify the processes that determine that variability. Air-sea interaction is of particular interest, but we will also investigate the coupling of the sub-thermocline ocean to the mixed layer. We seek to make observations over a wide range of environmental conditions with the intent of improving our understanding of upper ocean dynamics and of the physical processes that determine both the vertical and horizontal structure of the upper ocean.
