Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The project aims to advance the study of the spatial and temporal scales of topographically and tidally linked circulation, sea-air fluxes, and mixing and internal wave phenomenon within the Indonesian Seas, as well as develop a program in collaboration with Indonesian marine agencies and universities to study regional variability of meso and sub-mesoscale processes and ocean straight dynamics therein.

OUTCOMES: Improved understanding of the Indonesian Seas.
