Variability of the internal tide on the southern Monterey Bay continental shelf and associated bottom boundary layer sediment transport
Description: A 6-month deployment of instrumentation from April to October 2012 in 90 m water depth near the outer edge of the mid-shelf mud belt in southern Monterey Bay, California, reveals the importance regional upwelling on water column density structure, potentially accounting for the majority of the variability in internal tidal energy flux across the shelf.
