The long term goal of this project is to further understanding of the frontal and inner shelf dynamics of an upwelling system, particularly with respect to the evolution of frontal gradients, secondary frontal circulation and the formation of interleaving layers of differing hydrographicoptical properties such as the commonly observed, but poorly understood, temperature maximum and high turbidity layers.
