Caitlin Amos had the opportunity to present her research in Barcelona at the Ocean Vector Winds Science Team Meeting in April. According to Caitlin, "My research compared the offshore transport of coastal water in the California Current System due to winds and mesoscale eddies. Coastal water is rich in nutrients due to upwelling along the coast and this water can be redistributed offshore by physical processes, such as eddies and winds. For my research I used satellite measurements and model simulations to estimate the volume of water that eddies trap and transport offshore and compared this to the offshore transport caused by winds (Ekman transport)." Such amazing work, Caitlin- and we're so happy to have you back home!
