Abstract:

The long-range goal of this proposal is to improve our understanding of surface currents and fronts in the northeast South China Sea and their influence on acoustic propagation across the shelfbreak in this low-latitude setting. We are using satellite measurements of sea surface temperature, color, height and winds to identify and analyze the regional surface fronts and mesoscale eddy features and collaborate with other ASIAEX investigators to reach this goal.
