DTIC Identifiers: OPTOMA project, California current, PE61153W.

Author(s) key words: California current system, physical oceanography, dynamic oceanography.

The OPTOMA (Ocean Prediction Through Observations, Modeling and Analysis) Program seeks to understand the mesoscale (fronts, eddies, and jets) variability and dynamics of the California Current System and to determine the scientific limits to practical mesoscale ocean forecasting. To help carry out the aims of this project, a series of cruises has been planned in two subdomains, NOCAL and CENCAL. The two cruises and one AXBT flight comprising OPTOMA17 were undertaken in the USNS DE STEIGUER and a Reserve Patrol Wing P3B aircraft. Hydrographic data were acquired off the coast of California in an area which covered and extended the NOCAL region. On each of these cruises, hydrographic stations were occupied at approximately 19 km along the track. For the AXBT flight, the along-track station spacing varied between about 28 km and about 46 km. Data acquired during Legs DI and DII include XBT and CTD profiles; whereas data acquired during Leg P are AXBT profiles. Bucket surface temperatures were taken at all CTD stations. A rosette sampler was used to acquire deep salinity samples. These salinity samples were used for calibration purposes as well as contributions to the data base.
