The article presents the results of measurement surveys carried out with the REMOCEAN system in two test sites in the Gulf of Naples.
A study on the horizontal surface mixing and the transport induced by waves in a coastal environment. A comparative study is addressed by computing the Lagrangian Coherent Structures, via Finite Size Lyapunov Exponents, that arise in two different numerical settings: with and without wave coupled to currents.
An operational model for oil spill and Search and Rescue Operations is presented. The model constructs a daily database of velocity predictions provided by an Operational Forecasting System and integrates the Eulerian velocities to obtain the trajectory forward in time adding a random walk term to simulate the diffusion.
This article, first provide a summary of the knowledge of the physical and biological dynamics of the GoN, and then focus on the seasonal features of the surface circulation and plankton dynamics.
