ANZFLUX was a focused study of the anomalously thin ice and high heat fluxes in the eastern Weddell Sea conducted from two ice camps deployed from the ice breaker N. B. Palmer in July and August 1994. Timeseries of microstructure profiles, velocity and Reynolds stress profiles measured by a 5 beam Broadband Acoustic Doppler Profiler, and in situ measurements have been used to measure heat fluxes and determine the physical processes contributing to the very high vertical momentum and heat fluxes in the region.
The Ocean Turbulence Laboratory in the Oceanography Department at the Naval Postgraduate School has an active research program addressing a range of ocean turbulent boundary layer problems. The group has developed observational systems for studying sub-ice boundary layers in polar regions, coastal internal waves, solitons and turbulence over the continental shelf, and the wave forced boundary bottom boundary layer over the inner shelf and surf zone.
