Our long-term goal is to develop instrument systems for coherent, real-time monitoring of multiple biological, physical, chemical, and optical parameters within the ocean, in 3-dimensional space and time. These systems must be readily deployable, yet provide real-time data with sufficient vertical and horizontal resolution for determination of the coastal environmental response to episodic events such as storms, nutrient inputs, hypoxia and algal blooms.
