Title: SEA: Physical Oceanography in PWS

Project Year and Number: 1996: 96320-M

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1999: 99320-M-CLO, 1998: 98320-M, 1997: 97320-M, 1995: 95320-M, 1994: 94320-M

Principal Investigator (PI): Shari Vaughan, Prince William Sound Science Center

Assisting Personnel: Shelton Gay, Loren Tuttle

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Not Specified

Abstract: This project would investigate the physical oceanographic structure of PWS including the space/time variability of atmospheric and oceanic processes within PWS, investigate relationships between atmospheric forcing (wind, storms, long term temperature changes) and wind and buoyancy-driven currents; determine how these relationships act to retain/disperse food resources for ecologically important species within PWS; and investigate large and fine scale oceanographic structures and major climatic cycles and events.
