LONG-TERM GOALS. My long-term goals are to develop instruments to observe physical phenomena responsible for mixing the ocean, suspending and transporting sediment at the bottom, and entraining air and momentum at the surface under wind and waves. OBJECTIVES. Study of a coastal environment over several seasons with instrumentation capable of determining processes responsible for mixing sediment and nutrients into the photic zone, and observation of optical properties over the entire water column, both inherent and particulate, will enable us to understand the physical processes responsible for coastal ocean visibility variations. My objective under this grant is to facilitate joint studies by the PIs in the CMO experiment through data exchange, joint planning of experiments, and mutual consideration of results.
