Abstract:

The long-term goals and scientific objectives of this project are essentially unchanged from last year. This project is in its final year, and some of the results from field experiments have been reported. The primary long-term goal has been to determine the intensity and temporal history of internal waves and tides on the upper continental slope off northern California. A related and ancillary goal is to obtain long-term measurements two years of the thermal fluctuations in the internal wave band in the study area.
