Abstract:

The overall goal of our work is to establish and quantify physical and particle relationships via optical properties as part of the ONR Coastal Mixing and Optics CMO program. Specific goals of our research are 1 to better understand the problem of vertical mixing and transport of particles, 2 to obtain new observations which will enable us to examine and model important processes both periodic and episodic that affect the distributions of optical properties and particle concentrations, and 3 to improve the interpretation and facilitate the utilization of emerging optical measurements taken in coastal waters.
