Ship ops teleconference notes – April/05/2017

Call minutes – Inner Shelf DRI ship ops (April/05/2017) •Paul Chua will be on the Ride. •One engineer from Jen’s group will be on the Sproul. •Need to think about brief larger-scale surveys to help interpret the main experiment data. •Falk’s + Matt’s NPS drifter deployments: Crosses with 5 drifters are good, other spatial arrangements may work too. •Sproul can … Read More

2015 Surface Vorticity Movie

Movie of the surface (top ROMs bin) vertical vorticity for the 2015 simulation. The top panels are for the simulations without waves and the bottom panel are the simulations with waves. Leftmost panel is temperature anomaly on the 200m grid w/ 66m grid (black box) overlaid. 2nd column is the 200m vorticity with 66m overlaid. 3rd column is 66m vorticity … Read More

Full 2009 Model Simulation FTLE Movie

In planning for the drifter releases, Matt Spydell has put together this movie for the entire 2009 simulation: Aug 15 – Nov 15 using the 200m and 66 m (north and south) grids. The movie is long, you can speed it up 2x using the tools button.  The top panels are finite-time forward Lyupanov exponents for times at 2, 4, 6, and 10 … Read More
