Ocean Surface Mixing, Ocean Sub-mesoscale Interaction Study (OSMOSIS)
The Ocean Surface Mixing, Ocean Sub-mesoscale Interaction Study (OSMOSIS) consortium aims to improve understanding of the Ocean Surface Boundary Layer (OSBL), the interface between the atmosphere and the deeper ocean. This layer of the water column is thought to play a pivotal role in global climate and the productivity of our oceans.
OSMOSIS will utilise the very latest observational strategies and modelling techniques to further our current knowledge. To find out more, follow these links
