Abstract: This project will use a thermosalinograph and fluorometer, to be installed on a crude oil tanker, to acquire continuous, long-term measurements of the near-surface temperature, salinity, and fluorescence fields along the tanker route between Valdez, Alaska and Long Beach, California. This project received $18,100 under the FY 03 Phase I invitation. The additional funds requested under Phase II will complete installation of the fluorometer (the thermosalinograph has been installed on the tanker Polar Alaska) and allow for several adjustments to the project objectives.
