Completed Projects

Location mapThe primary focus of the Upper Ocean Processes Group is the study of physical processes in the upper ocean and at the air-sea interface using moored surface buoys equipped with meteorological and oceanographic sensors. Recent projects for which field work has been completed include surface mooring deployments in the high heat-exchange region of the Gulf Stream as part of the CLIMODE experiment, the Coupled Boundary Layer – Air Sea Transfer (CBLAST) experiment, the Pan-American Climate Study (PACS), and the Coastal Mixing and Optics (CMO) moored array experiment.
