SPURS-2 Initial Results
Description: The R/V Revelle expedition has been the opening round in a yearlong effort to understand the upper ocean physical processes in the eastern tropical Pacific. It is with some caution and caveats the article's author tries to summarize the findings from the last six weeks of this effort. Ideas are still young and data processing is still in its early phases. Only data from shipboard measurements are complete but still require careful screening, calibration, and validation. Despite the caveats, some of their questions and challenges are much clearer now than before they left Honolulu. [Source: NASA Earth Observatory]
