Title Characterizing Surface Transport Barriers in the South China Sea.
Publication Date Sep 2013
Media Count 3p
Personal Author T. Peacock
Abstract The long term goal of this project is to advance the state of the art in mathematical methods for detecting key transport structures in velocity field data sets for spatially complex, time-dependent, ocean surface flows. Such transport structures are typically not inherently obvious in snapshots of the Eulerian velocity field and require analysis methods with foundations in Lagrangian flow transport. Within the context of this DRI, a long term goal is to improve understanding of the formation and location of submesoscale fronts in the South China Sea (SCS).
