Abstract:

The ultimate goal of this project is to improve our understanding of turbulence and small scale processes in the oceanic near surface layer and their relation to surface waves and meteorological forcing. Better understanding of these processes will result in the improvement of turbulence parameterization schemes and therefore in more accurate model predictions.
