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 research and education to advance understanding of the ocean and its interaction with the Earth system, and to communicating this understanding for the benefit of society. Learn more »
