Abstract : This is a semi-annual report based on the activities of 10 research groups. 1. Development for the Mercury Array processor for advanced image processing. 2. The use of synthetic Aperture radar for studying ocean waves and wave current interactions. 3. The study of wind sets on the North Pacific Ocean. 4. Development of a Kalman Filtering Spectral Analysis Program. 5. Acquisition of a VAX-11/750 to study Marine Climatology and Ocean Currents. 6. The reduction of Lagrangian DRIFTER DATA for the California Current. 7. Intergration of in-site and remote sensing data for the study of Marine Systems. 8. The study of the mixed layer model of the ocean. 9. Experiments on the Assimilation of Altimeter Data into a Quasi-Geostrophic, Eddy Resolving Numerical Model. 10. Data Assismilation on Basin Scaling Modeling.
