Some considerations about coastal ocean observing systems
MetadataShow full item record
Coastal ocean observing capabilities are evolving rapidly, both in terms of sensors and in terms of the volume of information available. We discuss the aspects of the coastal ocean that make it a unique environment, both in terms of physical processes and measurement techniques. Although many global-level systems are relevant to the coastal ocean, we concentrate on treating systems that are unique to the continental shelf environment. Further, we briefly discuss examples of measurement systems that would be useful for developing and driving ocean prediction systems.

Harden, Benjamin E.; Straneo, Fiamma; Sutherland, David A. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-12-23)We present a year-round assessment of the hydrographic variability within the East Greenland Coastal Current on the Greenland shelf from five synoptic crossings and 4 years of moored hydrographic data. From the five synoptic ...
Historic 2005 toxic bloom of Alexandrium fundyense in the west Gulf of Maine : 1. In situ observations of coastal hydrography and circulation He, Ruoying; McGillicuddy, Dennis J. (American Geophysical Union, 2008-07-26)An extensive Alexandrium fundyense bloom occurred along the coast of the Gulf of Maine in late spring and early summer 2005. To understand the physical aspects of bloom's initiation and development, in situ observations ...
