[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: As part of the Coastal Mixing and Optics (CMO) Program, the Woods Hole
Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) performed tracer studies using fluorescent
dyes to study stirring and mixing in density-stratified waters on the
continental shelf.

Fluorescent dye was released in a 2-km streak onto an isopycnal surface, and
subsequent dispersion was measured to determine ... View entire text

Use Constraints The web site of the Coastal Mixing and Optics (CMO) Dye Studies at Woods Hole
Oceanographic Institution is maintained for the use of participants in the
ONR-sponsored CMO program. The contents of the site include raw data and
preliminary analyses which, pending publication, are considered proprietary by
the program participants. The availability of these data and analyses on the
web site does not imply permission for anyone outside the program to use these
data. Permission must be obtained from ONR and the individual investigator
before anyone uses these data for research purposes outside the scope of the
CMO program.
