Dr. Sarah Gille, SIO
"Probing small-scale processes in the California Current: Laying the groundwork for the SWOT satellite"
The Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) satellite will measure sea surface elevation with unprecedented spatial resolution. A challenge prior to the satellite's 2021 launch is to identify the dominant processes that influence sea surface height variability at spatial scales of 50 km or less. Surface waves, tides, and internal waves all potentially play a role, and this talk will look at some of the research efforts to understand these processes.
