Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to quantify submesoscale processes in order to improve our understanding of ocean interactions at various space and time scales. Our current effort focuses on the following four tasks 1. Understanding small-scale coastal ocean processes 2. Understanding small-scale advective exchange and stirring 3. Model assessment, enhancement, and assimilation 4. Using high-resolution disparate HRD ocean surface data to infer subsurface flow conditions.
