Oceanography Research Summary
MetadataShow full item record
The Oceanography Department has developed a broad research program focused on physical oceanography to meet the anticipated future needs of the Navy. Our priority basic research themes are the development of scientific capabilities to measure, analyze and forecast fields of littoral ocean variables which occur in association with synoptic/mesoscale processes over limited regional and temporal domains. The areas of emphasis include coastal and nearshore ocean dynamics, air-sea interaction phenomena and boundary currents. Regions of interest include the marginal sea ice zone, coastal ocean regions and strategic straits of the world.
