Project Duration: 2000-2007
This is a 5-year, NSF-funded study of the role of wind-driven transport in shelf productivity. We are a team of 11 principle investigators from 5 academic institutions who aim to better understand the competing influences of wind on productivity. Towards this end, we are studying the 3-dimensional circulation, wind field, size-structured plankton distributions, productivity processes and transport over the shelf off Bodega Bay in northern California.
