The Coastal Mixing and Optics ARI Program is an oceanography program to study
the mixing of ocean water on the continental shelf, and the effect of the mixing
on the transmission of light through the water. An experiment will be done in
1996-97 southeast of Montauk Point, Long Island.
There are two "Primer" programs closely related to the
CM&O program. These programs involve ocean acoustics on the shelf, and will
participate in the experiment. These acoustics programs are the Synthetic Aperture
Sonar Volume Coherence primer, and the Sound Propagation from the Continental
Slope to the Continental Shelf primer.
All of these programs are sponsored by the US Office of
Profiling with EPSONDE on the R/V Oceanus in September 1996
