The "plumes project" in the SBC LTER characterizes storm water dilution and land-ocean interactions by model surface wave-current interactions and stream water dispersion. We apply the Regional Ocean Model System (ROMS) several SBC LTER sites in the Santa Barbara Channel. The research is conducted at UCSB by Dave Siegel's group, and at UCLA with Dr. Uchiyama.
