IS24B:
Development and Application of Acoustical Remote Sensing Methods to Measure Ocean Parameters and Processes II Posters

Session ID#: 85793

Session Description:
This is a session aimed at exploring the use of both passive and active acoustical techniques, along with other synergistic observations, to further our understanding of ocean biological, chemical, atmospheric and physical oceanographic processes from mixing to climate scales. Papers addressing modeling, theoretical and observational aspects of ocean processes, acoustic scattering physics, and inverse methods are all welcome. Areas of particular interest are 1) air sea interaction, 2) bubbles 3) monitoring of marine organisms 4) mixing and turbulence 5) surface, internal, and inertial waves, 6) mesoscale and submesoscale processes, 7) seabed properties, sediment suspension and transport, and 8) climate processes.
