Abstract:

This study fits within our broader scientific efforts to understand Physical and biological responses of the upper ocean to atmospheric forcing and how these penetrate to the interior. The dynamics and biological influences of instabilities, secondary circulations and vertical motions associated with upper ocean fronts. Physical and bio-optical transitions between coastal and central basin waters.
