Abstract:

Long Term Goals. The long-term goals associated with this project are to quantify turbulence and to understand the mechanisms and implications of turbulent mixing in the bottom boundary layer of the coastal ocean. Objectives. the specific objectives of this project are to test, in the continental shelf bottom boundary layer, 1 simplified budgets for turbulent kinetic energy and scalar variance, 2 flux-profile relationships for momentum and scalars, and 3 vertically integrated momentum and heat balances.
