Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to explore and test the potential effectiveness of low-level nutrient concentrations nitrate, nitrite, and ammonia as descriptors of geophysical fields and tracers of physical processes in oligotrophic coastal waters, with particular attention to adapting our laboratory sensor for these nutrients for use in an AUV. The nutrient data are to be incorporated into prognostic physical-biogeochemical models in a feedback mode.
