  • Slide 1
  • SPURS Pasadena Workshop SPURS-1 Synthesis SPURS-2 Planning April 16-18, 2014 Del Mar Meeting Room, Courtyard Marriot
  • Slide 2
  • Background Jan. 2013 SPURS meeting in Miami chose an eastern tropical Pacific focus for Fresh SPURS-2 Miami and Ocean Sciences Meeting in Feb. 2014 provided looks at SPURS-1 results NASA Synthesis and Planning proposals submitted in December are being funded (funds available soon) This meeting is to facilitate both the synthesis and planning Immediate need is for SPURS-2 white paper, in preparation for July 1 proposals.
  • Slide 3
  • Synthesis Goals Resolve terms of the freshwater and heat budgets of the upper 1000m on time scales of a few days and spatial scales of 100-1000 km around the salinity maximum Identify/Quantify processes responsible for ~100m winter mixed layer, restratification in spring and relation to subsurface salinity maximum. Provide detailed description/analysis of near-surface T and S fields during annula cycle and role in air-sea interaction and remote sensing.
  • Slide 4
  • Salinity Processes Upper-ocean Regional Study (SPURS) The SPURS large box
  • Slide 5
  • Aquarius salinity, March 2012 psu
  • Slide 6
  • The SPURS large box Aquarius salinity, March 2012 psu
  • Slide 7
  • The SPURS small box Aquarius salinity, March 2012 psu
  • Slide 8
  • GPCP Precip
  • Slide 9
  • SPURS-2 Eastern Tropical Pacific bookend to SPURS-1, as Atlantic water is carried into the Pacific across Central America Fresh water forcing poses different issues than evaporation, more surface focused and barrier-layer physics, rather than subduction
  • Slide 10
  • SPURS-2 May - 2014: Develop planning document for NASA and participant review July 30 SPURS-2 Proposals due at NASA Aug 16 Proposals due at NSF ~Oct30 SPUR-2 NASA Funding Decisions Jan 2015 NASA Funding starts Spring 2015 SPURS-2 Workshop 3 rd qtr 2015 -1 st qtr 2015 First cruise
