Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS. This research is concerned with accurate and efficient four-dimensional field estimation and fundamental dynamical process studies for the mid-latitude ocean. The research is multiscale, interdisciplinary and generic. The methods are applicable to an arbitrary region of the coastal andor deep ocean and across the shelf-break. Results contribute to knowledge of realistic regional processes and general physical and physicalacoustical processes and the formulation and initiation of studies on physical-biological-chemical interactions essential to the understanding of biogeochemical-cycles and ecosystem dynamics.
