Abstract:

In collaboration with Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences faculty at Rutgers University, we propose to develop and validate an integrated adaptive sampling and modeling system for nowcasting and forecasting the 3-dimensional evolution of inherent optical properties IOPs in coastal waters. This will be accomplished by developing an integrated observation network providing real-time data allowing for adaptive sampling in nearshore coastal waters. The data will also be used to develop hyperspectral remote sensing techniques for optically complex coastal waters while also providing biologicaloptical data for coupled data assimilative hydrodynamic ecosystem models currently under development.
