  • About the Edition

    The NOAA National Underseas Research Program at Rutgers University is establishing a Long-term Ecosystem Observatory off New Jersey in 15 meters of water. As part of a bottom boundary layer study at this site, WHOI deployed a bottom instrument frame during the winter of 1993-94. The bottom instrument carried a current meter, a vertical array of optical back scattering sensors, temperature, pressure and conductivity sensors and an Acoustical Backscattering Sensor. The deployment was partially successful as the acoustic system failed. The other instrumentation worked well for 3 weeks returning data on winter conditions at the site. The extreme winter waves ended the experiment by tipping the instrument over on its side. The optical instrumentation was calibrated with sediment from the site, and the results from the experiment presented.

A simple model for the near‐bottom combined wave and current flow over a moveable sediment bed is presented. The model is an extension of the Grant and Madsen () combined wave and current model, with moveable bed effects on the physical bottom. For the LEO site, physical data (including sea surface temperature, hydrographic profiles, and high-frequency radar surface currents) have been assimilated in real time with forecasts made ev 24, or 48 h during summer experiments in years and (Glenn, personal communication).Cited by: Nearly 2 years of wave and current observations are used to drive a calibrated bottom boundary layer model to examine sediment transport at the Long-term Ecosystem Observatory (LEO) located off.

Introduction. For the Ocean Studies Board's examination of achievements of the National Science Foundation (NSF) in ocean research, we have been asked "to focus on the landmark achievements in biological oceanography in the past 50 years, the individuals involved, the new technology and ideas that made these achievements possible, how one discovery built on the foundations of earlier ones.

During the winter months sediment resuspension is forced primarily by near-bed oscillatory flows, and sediment transport occurs both as suspended load and as gravity-driven (fluid-mud) flows. Here, we show example data, collected near to the LEO site off the coast of New Jersey in 15–21 m deep water, reported in full by Nimmo Smith et al.,Nimmo Smith et al., At this site, the sandy seabed is flat with some small bedforms.

Among the topics covered are the chemical composition of seawater from the perspectives of elemental speciation and the impacts of solutes on water's physical behavior; biogeochemical phenomena which control.

This has been a joint project with Chris von Alt's group at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and industry, as you have heard. During both events, along-shelf sediment transport exceeded across-shelf transport and was related to the magnitude and direction of subtidal currents. Given the variations in sediment type across the bay, complex shoreline configuration, and local bathymetry, the sediment transport rates reported here are very site specific.
