Interannual Variation of Fall Storms Proposal
The Mid-Atlantic Bight group will be looking at inter annual variation of fall storms.
Specifically, we will be looking at two nor'easters, two hurricanes, and two major storms.
The major storms that we will be looking at are tropical storm Nicole on Sept. 30th 2010 and major storm on Aug. 13-15 2011. The two nor'easters are from Nov. 11-16th 2009 and April 15-16th 2007. Lastly, the two hurricanes we will be looking at will be hurricane Irene in August 2011 (provided by our other Mid-Atlantic Bight group) and Hurricane Earl from September 2010.
For all of these storms we will be looking at salinity and temperature. As we research more information and have more data we will also be able to look at chlorophyll and the oxygen levels in the water at the time of the storms.
Gliders We will use: RU23, RU22, RU16, RU15, RU7...
