“Inner Shelf” field experiment on R/V Oceanus off San Luis Obispo, California. The project is to study the exchange of water, energy, and materials across the “inner shelf,” the region between the breaking-wave surfzone and the deep continental shelf. Twenty oceanographic moorings were installed and an undulating underwater vehicle, the BAT, was towed to study the circulation and water properties in a region off San Luis Obispo and Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. Co-PIs on the project are Jack Barth and Jim Lerczak. Jim Moum’s group designed and built some new turbulence sensors that were deployed on the moorings and the BAT.
