Abstract : Studies have been made directed at: modelling high energy, near Gulf Stream regions; optimally combining data with general models, including inverse and control methods; reducing satellite data (altimetry and scatterometry) for combination into the models; and developing a new generation of operational tomographic instruments. Keywords: Physical oceanography; Acoustic tomography; Satellite altimetry; Gulf stream.
