[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: As part of the Coastal Mixing and Optics (CMO) Program, Lamont-Doherty
Earth Observatory (LDEO) of Columbia University performed tracer
studies using fluorescent dyes to study small scale mixing and
circulation near a frontal boundary.

A fluorescent dye tracer, Rhodamine-WT, was injected from a towed sled
into the benthic boundary layer (BBL) at the foot of the shelfbreak
front in the Middle ... View entire text
