Abstract:

We have two major goals. The first is to improve our capabilities and scientific knowledge concerning Lagrangian predictability in the ocean. Specific applications include search and rescue operations, the design of float and drifter experiments, and the understanding of stirring mechanisms. The second goal is to develop methods allowing the assessment of the underlying dynamics and predictability of complex physical systems in the ocean based solely on the analysis of time-series.
