Abstract:

Our long-term goals are to understand the mechanisms of turbulence and mixing in the coastal ocean environment sufficiently well to be able to incorporate mixing processes in coastal circulation models as sub-grid scale parameterizations. We plan to achieve our long-range objectives by collecting concurrent data sets of microscale, finescale, and mesoscale variables from sensors mounted on an autonomous underwater vehicle.
