Abstract : LONG-TERM GOALS This study contributes to our long-term efforts toward understanding: The dynamics of barrier layers and surface mixed layers in the N. Arabian Sea The penetration of radiative and atmospheric fluxes into the ocean interior Interaction of finescale and submesoscale processes in barrier layer formation Characteristics and impact of internal gravity waves trapped above barrier layers.
