are requested to facilitate the analysis of data acquired
in a pilot
experiment to assess the feasibility of studying horizontal dispersion
and vertical mixing in high energy environments by mapping
dimensional evolution of an injected dye patch using airborne LIDAR.
that this may be the only sampling technique that can resolve "rapid" processes
in the mixed layer and pycnocline that vary on space and
time scales from meters to kilometers and
hours to days. Such motions are of considerable importance to the
ecology and chemistry of the coastal ocean.
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is dedicated to advancing knowledge of the ocean and its connection with the Earth system through a sustained commitment to excellence in science, engineering, and education, and to the application of this knowledge to problems facing society. Learn more »
