SWIFT drifter results to date

Here is a composite image from 12 days of SWIFT drifter runs through the inlet spanning many different tide/wind/wave conditions.  The color scale is the surface turbulence dissipation rate, which is generally correlated with strong wave-current interactions in the two channels.  Preliminary turbulence metrics and bulk wind, wave, and current values are posted for each day at http://herschel.apl.washington.edu/darla/SWIFT/, along with an xls  table listing available data.  More to come!

APL-UW drifter tracks thru 9 May.
