Abstract : This report describes the third year of activity on a Secretary of the Navy Research Professor grant. Modelling work on the dynamics of energetic, near Gulf Stream features continues. Data-model combinations using altimetry and direct measurements are being made. A tomographic array was deployed near the Gulf Stream to test a new generation of operational instruments. Keywords: Physical oceanography, Acoustic tomography, Satellite altimetry, Gulf Stream.
