Abstract:

The overall goal of this multi-investigator project is to understand the biological and physical mechanisms for producing and maintaining dense aggregations of zooplankton in regions where ocean currents interact with steeply-sloping coastal sills. Field trials combining multi-frequency acoustics, instrumented plankton net tows, and in situ optical techniques will be conducted in FY02 and FY03.
