The experimental and numerical objectives are to observe: 1) vertical structure of the rip current along the axis of a rip channel, 2) rip current pulsations, 3) mixing and flow patterns in the rip current cell.
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.
